Sending Love Card Using CTMH Backyard Bliss Cardmaking Workshop G1260

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is having time to enjoy getting out this year.  Our temperatures have been hovering around 112 for over 2 weeks.  I think the temperature finally came down a little and it was around 100 yesterday.  It is supposed to be around 85 today; so that should feel cool after such hot humid temperatures.  

I have been working on using my latest card kits that I bought.  I have a hard time trying to use all of them.  I am trying to do better and at least make one set of the cards.  This is a favorite of mine.  I used CTMH Backyard Bliss Cardmaking Workshop G1260 and created 4 cards.   This is Card #2 from the kit.  I do like  having directions with photos and ideas; but I also tend to change them up a little bit. I like to personalize them.  I didn't change this one, except to add sequins and I used Copic markers instead of watercolors.

I used the inside sentiments on all 4 cards from the CTMH National Stamping Month - Card Creativity Special - using CTMH Sending Love and Laughter CC9220.
