I created a layout and a card to share with you today. I really wanted to showcase the charms in a way that made them the "feature of my layout. So I used a whopping 6!! I used the adorable ampersand throughout my title, then used the adorable frame to highlight the forsythia plants that my son was playing in from our yard as extra pops of color on my predominantly blue page. I really love how the charms stand out with they ultra cool texture!BlogHop_Card1_AH_GoodTimes

Next up is my card. This time I wanted to make the charm the front and center focal point. So I used this adorable soda fountain drink and really tried to play up that soda fountain feel with my papers that I chose (from 5 & Dime, Campfire and Modern Homemaker). I'd LOVE to receive a card or invitation that looked this yummy!?
