You Are Priceless

Yay for new techniques!

 I have limited heart sets, so 

 (hosted by Melissa)

 is perfect for me.

I can make use of a stamp set that hasn't seen much show time.


(stamps: Papertrey Ink You're a Gem/What the Doodle Waves squiggle,Songbirds what not,Half&Half swirls,City Scene teeny star  dies:Avery Elle Elle-Ments Double Pierced Rectangles,Spellbinders Hearts for masking)

LOVE the geometric shapes in Papertrey's "You're a Gem" set.

 After cutting a heart mask out, I inked up
 those scrumptious jewels and added squiggles and what nots from various sets like "What the Doodle Waves,Songbirds,Half & Half" and the teeny star from "City Scene".

 I'm pretty happy with the wreath that appeared!

Thanks for stopping in friends~
