{MTSC77} Happy Everything!

 It's Tuesday and time for Mercy's Marvelous Sketch Challenge!

Once again, I saw that circle in the layout and went for the big Bazzill paper flowers in my stash.  Once I selected the flowers, I had to find a coordinating designer pap  This one is from a Basic Grey (Lemonade) 6 x 6 paper pad.  The base cardstock is Baja Breeze and I've stamped it with the Linen background stamp and distressed the edges with Versafine Vintage Sepia.  The designer paper is layered and stitched onto Purely Pomegranate cardstock.  The big button is stitched on with linen thread.


You are ALL encouraged to play along with the challenge this week! Simply create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above and link your creation on Mercy's blog.  Please use the keyword MTSC77 when uploading to a public gallery.

Now, hop on over and see what

Happy Stamping & Smiles 2 U!



Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want. ~Margaret Young
