Send me soaring
Here is installment #3 of my "Summer smooches" phase. Today's card used two stamp sets that I HAD to have and then didn't use: Send me soaring and Petite pairs. Both sets are really cute but small, and I have a problem sometimes using the smaller images on cards. So that brings me to reason #47 that I LOVE the summer smooches paper: The patterns are bold and bright and can 'help' a card along so that you can use a smaller stamped focal image. Brilliant!!!! Usually I like to use designer paper as a background and let my stamps be the highlight of the card, but sometimes with smaller stamps they need a little boost, and this paper is perfect for that!
