I Heart My Besties

The details on this sweet girl are A-dorbs! Look at her little hand heart and long lashes, not to mention the curls and ruffled skirt! Of course she ‘hearts’ her besties. So cute! All she needed was a few accent layers to set the stage for her sweet message. I gave her some bling with a piece of the shimmery Love You Always Designer Series Paper, but otherwise this is all cardstock and cuteness!


Use Basic White Thick Cardstock anytime you are coloring with Stampin’ Blends. The colors come out much better.
