Hugs and Smiles

Hello Everyone and welcome to Day 3 of the Joy Clair release! I'm privileged to be a guest designer for this new company. I really enjoyed working with the stamp sets that I used, and I hope that you will like them too!  Today's set is beautiful and you are going to love it! There is a large image in this set that most will automatically reach for - but I decided to give the smaller images in this set a little love. Let me introduce....Hugs and Smiles!

Joy Clair Giveaway Day Three - For your chance to win today's release Hugs and Smiles Clear Stamps, simply leave a comment answering today's question of the day on the Joy Clair Blog Post. What large sentiment and small sentiment would you pair together if you were making your first card using Hugs and Smiles Clear Stamps set?
You have until Thursday August 27th to leave your comment on the JOY CLAIR BLOG. A winner will be announced on Friday's release post on the Joy Clair Blog. (August 28th).

I've used a base of Blushing Bride and layered with White and some Secret Garden DP.  I've added another piece of DP and then overlaid a strip of Blushing Bride punched with Deco Fan Border Punched and topped with yet more Secret Garden DP.  Over this I've attached some pretty white lace and topped with pink ribbon. I've accented with a flower, ribbon and diecut flourish.  I've stamped the sentiment from Hugs and Smiles in Versafine Black across the bottom.  I've then stamped the heart in black and the other two images from Hugs and Smiles in pink ink.  I've coloured the heart and cut the three out with Large Circle Nestabilities and popped them up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a couple of pearls to the top.

A very pretty arrangement of some gorgeous design elements, Kathy! The lace is ideal and I love the "hugs" down at the bottom. Totally fabulous!
