As you can see above, I am still loving the pink and orange colors!
I think it may be because spring is here!! And it has been beautiful here in North Carolina!

This card was created using the kissing stamp technique illustrated on this week's Making it Monday challenge #57 at Papertrey Ink. It made me realize 2 things! One I have NO solid stamp images...and second I have very few PTI stamps! I have lots of their dies and inks and sentiment stamping sets! 
So, I used  their Beautiful Blooms II stamp set. Even though the stamps are not solid, I think I still got a great result! You can see it better in real life than in this photo.
I used swirls2build (Stamps of Life) to kiss the flower stamps.
I made a 3-D flower for the sentiment. I made it by building layers of paper with the 1 1/2 circle punch and scallop punch from Stampin Up. I then made "grass" with a Martha Stewart punch.
Since I can't get my sewing machine to work, I stamped the right edge with
a Kraftin Kimmie set called In Stitches!
 And of course I had to add some rhinestones!

Thanks for stopping by!
