Kiss The Card...

It's another gorgeous day in the bloggy land neighborhood.  The birds are singing, the butterflies are flitting, rainbows are shining and people are kissing cards!  Say what? That's right, kissing cards.  Today is my second week to host the challenge over at Our Creative Corner and I've chosen the theme of Kissing and a twist.  No, I don't mean plant a big wet one on your project, but use the technique of kissing one stamp to another stamp AND add the letters X and O somewhere in the midst of all of that.  Here is a link to help show what I mean if you've never tried this technique before or you just need a refresher.
Here is my card I've designed for the challenge.
These are all the stamps I've used and you can see in the picture which ones I've paired together to 'kiss.'  The following stamps are all from Stampin' Up! (Paint Prints, Silhouette Sentiments, For All You Do, and All Natural)
Close up of the kissing technique using Bliss Blue on the background flower stamp and Vintage Photo DI for the bird.
Here is my little stamp from Inkadinkado which contains the letters
 X and O.
Every week and I mean EVERY week, I'm always blown away by the exquisite designs this DT comes up with.  I'd really love it if you popped in for a visit and and left them some words of encouragement.  They all work so very hard to create the most amazing and unique ideas to inspire.
Thanks so much for stopping in and I sure hope you'll find the time to play in my challenge at
Challenge Theme:
