Sweetest Day Is Coming

 Wow, time sure is flying by, isn't it?! I can't believe it's almost October - And that means Sweetest Day is coming up quickly!  Which brings me to my project for today.  Today is Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Catch The Bug, too, so I decided  to use one of the older images from Bugaboo Stamps, for today's project. It's always nice to bring some of the older images back into the limelight, again.  So easily we forget about them - But then we see them again and remember how much we still love them!

Today, my project uses the hugs and kisses image from Mini Set - Love Circle Sentiments - 10, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. The images is punched with circle punches. All papers are from my stash. I used glittered metal heart shaped brads, crystal hearts and gemstones, to add sparkle and shine. Ribbon and handmade bow add the finishing touch. I made this card to give to her boyfriend on Sweetest Day.  Hope he likes it!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
