Back with a Card!

Hi All!

Hope you're having a good day. It's so good to be home from vacation and getting back to normal. Don't get me wrong, vacation is wonderful too, but it's just nice to be home and back to the things I missed.

Last night I had a few minutes of time to myself so I made a card for a few challenges. Unfortunately, I'm a bit late for one of them, but that's OK. Still had fun making this one, the first since coming home. Boy was it nice to stamp!

First, this card works for the Whimsy Challenges Flower Power challenge which was to use any kind of floral accents, papers, embellishments, stamps etc. I also used this Rainy Day Emma image to fit the challenge as well. The card also uses the sketch from Sketch Saturday and the challenge of Touchy Feely - Use Texture from A Spoon Full of Sugar. The textured parts on this card are the embossed layers and the lace ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off now to check out what you've all been creating lately! Happy Stamping :)

Oh and today is my friend Debbie's birthday and she's celebrating with some AWESOME blog candy! Head on over to her blog and check it out! Big Happy Birthday Wishes to you Debbie!

Love your card Denise and a great colour combo. Paper piecing seems to be pretty popular right now, I was using this technique last night with a whimsy, say no more!!!! Hope you didn't get too many withdrawal symptons while you were away!
