Positive Strokes 2 Card | Kalyn Kepner for Paper Smooches

I used the Positive Strokes Two set (an awesome larger version of the smaller original set with some extras thrown in) as well as a sentiment from Scripty Sayings and some enamel dots for a little texture. This set is so great for creating focal designs, like I did here, or for adding some nice distressing or subtle texture to other designs! The sky is the limit with sets like this, so it’s a must on your wish list.

That’s it for me today, time to hop on to Kay Miller’s blog! Thank you so much for stopping by and joining in the fun.

Stay crafty,

Kalyn
