Designer paper and builder brad for HSS color challenge

How do you like the new designer builder brad and More Amore Specialty dsp in the Spring Catalog? I love them! I used the heart from the Itty Bitties stamp set for the middle of the brad, and covered it with a clear "bubble."
I made this card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #150, choosing to highlight this paper that has the sentiment on it. I added some black sponging around the edge of the paper, then added a Pool Party banner that was embossed with an Adorning Accent folder (more little hearts) and roughed up with the new distressing tool.

    I received a box on my porch the other day, and when I opened it there was this rustic candy scale. I was so excited! My sister, CB, found it on Craigslist and bought it for me. Is she awesome or what? I love it and plan to use it to display odds and ends in my rubber stamp shows this year. Cool!

Great idea on using the paper with the sentiments. It coordinates perfectly with your banner and embellishment. Love the sponged edge. Thanks so much for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
