Hello Frames Card

Good afternoon! Dropping by to share a card I finished a couple days ago for a couple different challenges, and didn't have time to photograph until today!

First up - this weeks Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - see that photo on the top left? I was drawn to that pattern, as well as the gray tones, and the way the letters pop off the wall with so much texture:

Next up, the neutral grays and pops of bright color for this weeks Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge (I also spotted the zebra in this weeks photo again, and almost went for that again!):

I used Paper Smooches Duo Die 1 to cut out several frames - mounting the center one with foam adhesive for lots of dimension. I also used Hello Word Dies to cut out the little hello several times, then glued them together to make a nice, thick, dimensional embellishment. You can see the dimension pretty well in this photo:

It just felt like it needed a little something extra - so I cut a few heart borders using the Hearts Dies out of shiny gold cardstock, then bent them a bit so they looked more like banners, and glued them on the top of the card.

Sometimes it's fun to make a card with just dies and no stamps! Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
