My card uses Promenade -- a stamp set that I absolutely fell for at first sight! There are so many cute elements that allows you to build the perfect chic little outdoor scene -- Paper Smooches style, of course! Kim really thought of everything in this little gem! My favorite is the bicycle image, so cute!




I punched a bunch of circles and turned them into balloons tied to the bike. The strings were all drawn freehand. Such a simple card that anyone can do! And I'm finally cutting into my beloved A Muse papers. Love them.

Thanks for popping in, good luck with the hop!
