More Paper Hugs

Hey there. I don't know about you but sometimes it just feels good to use supplies that you have had for a long time. I was a Stampin Up demo for about ten years about ten years ago. So that might make this Kalidacolor stamp pad 20 years old. Lol.
My card uses the Paper Hugs stamp set from a fairly new company called The Stamp Market. I love their images! Ink is from SU blue frost Kalidacolor and bashful blue. Cardstock is 110lbs white. Large heart is sprayed with Shimmer Spritz and popped up with royal blue fun foam.
This pick shows the glimmer on the heart better. I have a hard time getting that glimmer to show in pictures.
By using the Kalidacolor pad I was able to get that ombre effect. The sketch bellow was my layout inspiration and the Uniko challenge was old/new. My pad is old and the stamp set is new.

Simon Says Stamp challenge was to add a sentiment.

Finally the AAA Cards challenge was to use the image above as our inspiration. I used the color palette and the thought that when I am chilled a hug is the best medicine.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
