For my card today, I've used a few new products from the new release.  The image is called Spread Love by Crissy and the sentiments are form the Just a Note Notables 6 set, which was cut out using the Notables 6 Die.  I've also used the Double Scallop Heart Doily Die in the background and it was embossed using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  Sorry for the weird colors on the photo.  I took it as the dawn was breaking (talk about last minute) and couldn't seem to adjust the white balance just right.
