*you make my heart sing*

I was visiting Kristina Werner's blog today, and she mentioned that she was obsessed with rounding corners on everything. She asked if there was anything crafty her readers were obsessing over at the moment, and it got me thinkin'. For me, there are actually several things. The first thing that came to mind was how much I love adding grass to my scenes. I think it's because it adds such fun texture. No, I don't normally add *pink* grass, but I do love pink, and since this is card is a bit on the whimsical side, I think it works. Another one of my obsessions is pop dots. I love the dimension they create, and they just make your card more visually interesting.
I bought the coolest wrapping paper a few weeks ago, and I liked it so much I decided to use it on this card. It's the black background paper with the big white polka dots. It's a little bit flimsy, which makes it kind of hard to use, but it's a fun way of using up your scraps of wrapping paper. It's also hard to sand, and you can definitely notice the sanding marks. I like them to be more subtle, but oh well.
Maisy Ketto is so cute! I think it's her cute little bloomers and those big shoes that I love so much! And I adore this tree! It took me a while to cut out all those leaves, but it was worth it!
