JENNY GROPP - you are here!

Just in the house is the new Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments Collection. I knew I could find a pretty Impression Obsession Quote to use with it! The Love Above All quote I thought worked well. Love quote stamps, they work for anytime cards! and a random card that someone plucks from the mailbox is always sure to bring a smile!

I used the 8x8 and the 12x12 of the Perfect Petals paper. The card hinge is at the top and opens tent style. Foam tape between layers adds dimension.

I thought this pretty quote Warming Spring from Alesa Baker really paired up nicely with this paper. It's the same paper as in the above card... but it takes on a different look when paired up with purple. 

I added a little paper piercing around the edge and some layered circles. Of cousrse foam tape for dimension and a little sparkle with some adhesive gems.
