Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!

 Hey, friends!

I'm back today celebrating Reverse Confetti's big opening release by joining in on the big blog hop! 

There are four new sets being debuted with this release and I was lucky enough to work with this one...


Such a sweet set.

I went bright with it for yesterday's post so I decided to go soft and sweet for today's project...


I even used pastels.
Which are pretty much unheard of on my work table.

My comfort lies in white space paired with saturated colors... pastels are just a whole different animal to me.

Buuuuut...
I've really been wanting to give the bokeh effect a whirl...
and those hearts seemed like they were just *made* for it...
and the pastels seemed to be calling to me for once...
so I decided to go for it. 


I added a few clear embossed hearts for some extra shine and depth plus a pink patterned paper panel on the left side to balance out the design.

I have to say... I think it's so sweet.
Those pastel hearts got me :)


Well, kids... there's a whole lotta Reverse Confetti projects to be seen in today's blog hop.
It started out at the Reverse Confetti blog and if you hopped along you may have arrived here via Amber Hight's blog.

Next up is Dawn Easton, so head on over to see more.

And don't forget to check out all the brand new Reverse Confetti goodness available *now* {like... right now!} over at the brand new Reverse Confetti store!
