You Make Me Happy

It's hard to photograph acetate cards! This is an acetate card for Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge (#38). The colors this week were: Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White.


I've barely put a dent in my supply of rub ons. I tried to use up quite a few on this card. I've had fun using my Big Shot over the last week (I bought mine from QVC on New Year's Eve). I've been die cutting everything in sight: cardstock, vinyl, felt, chipboard, and a plastic lid from some Trader Joe's cookies. My favorite item to die cut is vinyl. On this card I die cut some pink felt. Fun, fun, fun! Gotta run...my husband has a fish taco waiting for me downstairs.


Thanks for looking!
