Hugs & Kisses card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse ConfettiI took my inspiration from the photo's color scheme and used it to create this clean and simple love themed design.   I used the large die from Reverse Confetti's Swirlies set to make the backdrop for my elements.  I cut the shape from both gold paper and craft foam, then layered the pieces and adhered them to a white panel.  The two pink hearts were cut using RC's Love Me dies.  I arranged them at the left of the swirly die cut using foam tape for dimension.  The "hugs & kisses" sentiment from the Crazy About You set was stamped on a red Tag Me die cut, then added to the arrangement over the swirly piece.  A few gold enamel dots arranged around the sentiment added one more sparkly touch.  The finished panel was adhered to a pink card base.
