I have been hoarding this Hugs and Kisses paper by American Krafts and decided it was time to use a bit today {grin}.  I paired it with this wonderful sentiment from Beautiful Things (so many fabulous sentiments in that set - not to mention the flowers!) and the Stitched Pennants Die Set.  Some pops of pink and some bling along with the scalloped hearts from the Scalloped TrimTrio Die Set finished things off.
