A Sweet Hello - Global Design Project 001

I love finding a new stamp challenge site and this cute little globe as been popping up on a few instagram accounts I follow and I couldn't wait to play along. 
 
Of course, I did wait... until it was almost too late.  Busy week for sure and I'm squeezing this one in with hours to spare!  I also couldn't pass up a challenge to use subtle colors - my favorite color collection from Stampin' Up! :)
 
 
I love this trend of watercoloring.  It is such a soft look to any card and with an aqua painter and your ink pad - it's easy peasy!
 


Silhouette & Script is a hostess set I passed up on pre-order never thinking I'd want it and now it's the one I use the most.  Love it!  I cut out each sunbeam which may have taken longer than I had liked, but oh well - it made the card extra special! :)

 
Thanks for swinging by today!  Make sure you stop by the all new Global Design Project blog! Lots of talented ladies and gents from all over!
 
Happy Friday!
-Holly

  5. I'm in love with your card! It is so sweet and dreamy!!! Every detail is perfect. The fussy cutting was defiantly worth the effort. I'm also liking how you use the smoky slate stripes and the twine.
