I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

A Little Sunshine

This little card turned out so nice!  I am excited about finding new sketches and seeing what I can do with them.  There are three challenges that I will be entering this card into.  The first is Whimsical Wednesday "Go Green", the second is Little Scrap Pieces "Emboss It", and the third is Cut It Up "Pinterest Inspired".  I found a card/layout on Pinterest last week that I really liked, I pinned it but hadn't done anything with it.  When I saw Cut It Up's challenge, I went back and found the pin.  It led me to stampdoc.typepad.com and the blogger said she got the sketch from MojoMonday.  Crazy little loop for me, because I decided I am going to start looking through their archives to find fun new sketches to work with.  Anyway, the embossing fit perfectly with Little Scrap Pieces' challenge, and I knew I wanted to use the fun green patterned paper for the Whimsical challenge.  It just all came together so nicely with these challenges complimenting each other in my little craft brain.  The butterfly came from Doodlecharms and I used fun glitter paper for that.  I used Mini Monograms for the Scallop and Circle.  The embossing folders I used were Cuttlebug's Juli's Garden and Bloom Dots.  I cut the scallop border using Spellbinder's Classic Scallop Edgeablilities.  The little "sunshine" stamp is from the Making Memories "Flutter" set.  This was such a fun card to make, I hope you like it!
