You brighten my day

So many wonderful challlenges…. Not enough hours in the day!  I would love to play along with every challenge out there but I have to pick and choose now that I am employed – there are days when I miss being able to stay in my jammies and just sit in my craft room all day.

For my card, I am using the sketch from The Sweet Stop’s challenge this week.  Several of the challenges this week have a similar theme – to use stripes and dots.  So I chose papers from Martha Stewart’s Modern Festive paper pad, if you look closely at the cloud paper it has micro-polkadots on it.  I purchased this paper pad quite a awhile back and just haven’t used it much, I wanted some brighter colors to dream of summertime!

The challenge this week at Lili’s Litte Fairies is to use our favorite LOTV stamp – that’s like asking a mother which is her favorite child.  Let’s just say, may favorite LOTV stamp is the one I happen to be using at the time – I LOVE them all!!!  The sentiment is also a LOTV stamp.

For embellishments I added a double layer of PTI ribbon and diecut felt flowers and topped each with a pearl.  All felt is not created equal – the felt from PTI is a nice heavy felt and has an even thickness to it, it diecuts beautifully!

I’m glad you stopped by and I hope I’ll see you again soon!  Dee
