Yup!  I officially love this layout!  After yesterday’s post I decided to colour another bear image and swap out the colours to see how different a look I get just by switching the colour palette.

I went über-girlie this time – it’s a fantastic layout for using LOTS of patterned paper – which I have.  Too much.  It’s my not-so-secret shame.  Whenever new papers come out in my favourite lines I stalk them until I finally cave and buy them.  I have managed to dial back my Basic Grey purchases though as those papers are more my original  card-making style and they don’t get enough love.  Echo Park and My Mind’s Eye, however, are the current rulers of my craft supply budget.

Anyhoo, enter today’s card – the only difference is the patterned paper and the sentiment placement:

I really love the vibrant colours on this card.  Got to play with the enamel dots again.  Woohoo!

Lots to do this week and we’re having a little dinner party this weekend so craft-time is probably not happening again for a few days.
