Life is SWEET!

Hello friends!  Hope that you are enjoying your weekend so far!
I have been enjoying playing out in the pool with hubby since it's been much warmer like Summer is supposed to be over my way.  It won't be long before we'll have to cover it up...so I want to enjoy it! :)

So...I saw this fun blog hop out in blogland and I thought it would be fun to participate in!
Check this out...
I don't believe that I have ever given my die cut machine OR my glossy accents that much of work out before! LOL!  This seems like such a simple design, but here's what I did:
I layered some strips of colored card stock down and ran my word die cut over that and then ran my same die cut several times through to make a thick layer that resembles chipboard thickness.  I then covered it with my Wink of Stella pen and then covered that with some glossy accents.  SO FUN!
I've also used about 4 different oval shaped dies to get the oval frame around it.  I covered the outer layer oval die with more glossy accents.  Of course I had to add some enamel dots to match!

THE PRODUCTS THAT I USED ARE LISTED BELOW
(some of the colors I've used are no longer available)

So here is what I'm linking this card to:
It ends tomorrow! :)
