Surrounded by Love

I just LOVE the sentiment that goes with this cuppie image from Taylored Expressions Sweet Spring

I stamped the image and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White cardstock and cut it out with rectangle Nestabilities. I picked up these fun MME Bloom & Grow papers when I was in Calgary and I thought the colours would be perfect for the jelly bean. 
I stamped the image again onto the patterned papers and paper pieced the jelly bean bag and the cuppie liner. The rest of the image is coloured with copics. I realize now that I didn't add any bling to the image, but I really don't think it needs it. 

The layout uses SC220 from Splitcoast. I knew I'd have a tough time deciding which papers to use so this sketch was perfect...I cut into several of the papers and used a smidge of each piece. The patterned panels are layered onto chocolate chip then I stitched around the edge with my Janome Sew Mini. 

The image is layered onto kiwi kiss, then a scallop of chocolate chip. I added three buttons to the bottom corner...it just seemed kinda naked without any embellishments. 

Thanks for stopping by!
