Sweet July Favorites With Paper Sweeties

Hello, sweet blog friends!  I'm posting today for Paper Sweeties, and I'll be sharing even more Paper Sweeties goodness with you tomorrow and again on Monday as we spend the month in review of our newest releases:  Treat Box Sweet Cuts, and Hey Y'all Stamp Set along with many of our past favorites.  This little card I'm sharing today does just that.
I started with some sweet patterned papers that I inked and machine stitched a bit.  Next, I placed a small ivory circular doily on the paper, and topped that with a circle cut using the Circle Scalloped Frames Sweet Cuts.  I cut the darling heart and the word (SWEET) using the Treat Box Sweet Cuts, and placed them on the circle.
To adorn my card, I made a pretty bow of Bubble Gum Seam Binding and Robin Egg Seam Binding, and I topped that with a little with sweetheart blossom.  I cut the arrow (twice) using the new Treat Box Sweet Cuts, and placed a Sugar Sprinkles Sequin on the turquoise arrow and attached it to the flower - pointing at the heart.   I placed another lighter blue arrow on the top right.  I don't know if you can really see them, but I also placed a cute page tab and a small flag tab that I cut using the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts.  You can see it peeking through to the left of my Seam Binding bow.
I also decided to place some buttons with ivory baker's twine in their centers at the bottom right of my card.  I guess I just felt like it was "off balance" a bit.  LOL   I have been known to "over-do" it more than once.  I just start adding cute things, and I can't stop!  And Paper Sweeties has so many ADORABLE products that it's hard not to want it ALL, and to use it all!  You will LOVE what you find at Paper Sweeties, and of course, there's always so much inspiration waiting for you on the Paper Sweeties Blog.  Speaking of's the list of my Paper Sweeties teammates who have prepared something sweet for you today:
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll hope to see ya again tomorrow!
