A Special Day


Hello and Happy Monday! I had a very relaxing weekend, complete with lots of card making time. I'm excited to show you some of those cards this week. I'm especially excited to show you today's card that was inspired by a dear friend of mine who isn't afraid to use color. I chose the stamp first, Leanne Ellis's "Blossom" (you might remember her from last week) and then I just had to use this adorable paper from K & Company (I think it has whales on it)! After that, I just let the colors do their thing. Thanks for stopping by and don't be shy, no comment is unwelcome!


Deets:
Stamps: Sugar Nellie, Blossom by Leanne Ellis; SU! Eat Cake-sentiment
Paper: K & Company, Berry Sweet; Taken with Teal, Regal Rose, Green Galore, AC textured CS Autumn
Ink: SU! Markers; Black Stazon; Clear Spica
Embies: SU! Ribbon (retired), Pearl Dots, Thread
