I'm Falling for You...

Here's the other card I managed to make using the new Falling For You set from Paper Pretties. I really love how the coloring on this card turned out (of course because I used my Prismas!) and I think she looks just like my cousin's daughter on this card. I think I'll have to send it to her!

I went with a fairly simple layout, but I added the linen thread to the corners of the main image to help it stand out a little more and frame Sophia in. I like the linen thread with these colors and image since it adds an additional touch of fall. I've added a close up photo of the main image below so you can see the colors even better...they come out so much brighter with the Prismas than when watercoloring!

For the sentiment I trimmed the strip of paper to 1/2" wide, then I punched the 2 ends with my 1/2" circle punch to round them out a little. Lastly, I sponged on some pumpkin ad chocolate chip inks to fade out the white a little and add some interest.

Have a great day everyone!
