Back to Crafting with Affection Collection

I am almost put together in my craft room after the move, but I had to create a card for a Holiday Catalog Swap, so I ignored the piles around me and found a few hours to get them finished. I used the new “Affection Collection” stamp set and came up with this card, which I then realized looked a little bit like the sketch challenge #213 on Create with Connie and Mary:

As I was making the card, it needed a little bling, so I added the Silver Glimmer Paper…did you know that you can color it using classic ink refills and an Aqua Painter? That’s how I made the pink glimmer heart!

It felt good to be creating again. I think I packed up my brain cells when we moved, though, and haven’t yet unpacked the box where I put them 🙂

UPDATED 8/15/12: Wahoo! Thanks, ladies, for picking my card as one of your top 3!
