Sweet Little Thing

Today's card was suppose to be for 2 challenges also but I missed the deadline for the one--OOPS! Oh well. But, the sketch of it fits the challenge over at The Sweetest Thing. This card is a 3x3 which seems to be all the rage right now. This is my first time making one of these small ones and it was fun! I used Oval set; StazOn black Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, Rich Razzleberry, & Cajun Craze inks; Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze, Regal Rose, & White cs; Greenhouse Gala DSP. Try something new with your stamping today too! Thanks for stopping by!
