Kiss the sun...

Mornin' friends!

It's time for a review preview of the newest CC Designs stamps over on the ATS blog today. I'm joining in the fun with a card featuring the sweet new Butterfly Lucy. I have to admit that there is something about the look of the Swiss Pixies from the last few releases that has me reaching for slightly more vintage/retro type colors and patterns to pair up with them. I'm not sure why exactly, but I just think the pretty, homespun looking papers suit them to a 'T'. Thus, my decision to pull out this Cosmo Cricket Togetherness paper from awhile back. All of the prints on this card are actually from the cover sheet that came with the collection kit and since I can never seem to bring myself to throw those away, I was glad to finally use it! Throw in a bit of twine and some lovely crochet flowers that my sis made for me, and this card came together rather quickly.

Now don't forget to check out what the rest of my fellow ATS teamies have created to share and inspire using the March Swiss Pixies. You can find all of their beautiful cards over on the ATS blog.
Well, I guess I should go get ready for the day... have a good one! :)
