One for Fun

Morning All!

Hope you're having a nice day today. The sun is shining this morning and I even had a chance to stamp already, so it's been a good day here so far. I do have some work to do, but I'm procrastinating while I enjoy the morning.

I've created this card today using some challenges for inspiration along with more Cappella BG papers. If you don't have these yet, they are a must have! So beautiful!

I used the sketch at Lili of the Valley for the layout on my card with cream and kraft card stock. The image is Summer Day Emma from Whimsy Stamps and she's been colored with Copics and then framed with oval nesties. I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine and distressed them a bit with scissors. I also stamped the swirl from Proud Momma along the edges of my paper with distressed ink. I've embellished with cherry blossoms and a gardenia, some lace from my stash, and a charm and beautiful spacers that I received as a birthday gift from my lovely friend Bev. Thanks so much sweetie, my beautiful card and gift arrived yesterday and they are fabulous!

This card also fits the challenges at:
ABC Challenge: U is for unused stash - lace trimming
La La Land: Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday: Someone Special

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day. I'll be back tomorrow with my challenge cards for Stamp Something and Just Magnolia. Hope you'll join me then!

Happy Stamping,
