A Pretty Hello

Hi! I hope you have been having a good week! I am so looking forward to the weekend. June is not my favorite month at work; it's our fiscal year end and my brain is on overload!  

I did get a chance to play along with this week Paper Smooches SPARKS June Picture Perfect Challenge.

Here's my take on the challenge. I die cut a number of the Ring Trio Die die from white card stock and layered them on a white card front. Next I inlayed patterned paper and vellum into the circles. 

The frame is cut with the Frame 3 Die and I stamped a sentiment from the Gently Seasoned Two Stamp Set in gold ink and embossed with gold embossing powder on vellum. A few gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and gold twine finish off the card. 

Thanks for stopping by!!
