Day 2 CDS sneak peeks - "Lovin' Ridley"

Hello and welcome to day #2 of Clear Dollar Stamp's sneak peeks! My peek for today is from the set "Lovin' Ridley and Rosie" illustrated by my dear friend Wendy Hall. When I got my first peek at this set, I knew I just HAD to have it! There are soooo many cute images on it. Such a great set for Valentine's Day or any occasion.

I am also a designer for "The Paper Temptress" and I have to point out the absolutly gorgous papers that I got from Patricia @ TPT.
The golden yellow is their "Gold Sparkle" and the pink is their "Rose Quartz Metallic"
The photos do not do this paper justice. It is unbelievable in person! I love it so much, I just bought another large batch! Be on the look out for it on future cards! ;)
