Planted in my heart

Hello, hello!

It's review preview day over on the ATS blog again and I've done another spin on April's fun addition to the Laugh line of stamps. Just like my second Birgitta card, this second Garden Laugh turned out a lot brighter than the first. Must be all of the wonderful sunshine I've been enjoying lately that is inspiring this shift in color palettes. ;)

I still had some of the Echo Park Hello, Spring papers on my desk and I decided to mix them up with some of the other scraps that were floating around. I really like how the dark browns contrast with the pretty pastels... kinda like blooming flowers against the dirt of the flower beds. And with all that color and sunshine I couldn't resist adding sprinkling of freckles across her sweet face. Though too much longer out there and we'll have to get this girl a nice big hat to shade her. :)

, so there is even more review preview fun and inspiration from the rest of the ATS team on the All That Scraps blog so be sure to hop on over there too! And all of the new April stamps can be found in the ATS store here!
