You + Me + Sunshine and Giggles

Please Note: I've made two blog posts today, this one and the Squigglefly Challenge one which follows. Be sure to check them both out!


(thanks to Sunshine and Giggles)

It gives a whole new outlook on Monday, doesn't it?

Today's card features the Sunshine and Giggles You + Me image. This image has so many incredible details, but I wanted to focus on the faces of these two darlings and the novelty of young love, so I spotlighted the faces, while leaving the rest of the image as a black and white drawing. I think it gives the image an artsy feel.

I layered some cardstock and designer papers and wrapped organdy ribbon around one of the layers three times before tying it.

Be sure and check the blogs of the other Sunshine and Giggles design team (links are in my sidebar) to see some more Sunshine Monday posts. And have fun today with the ones you love!

Very cute. This is a technique I have seen but yet to attempt. I think I will need to give it a try.
