{SSSC111} Fill Your Life With Sunshine...


Happy Monday!  Is your week getting off to a good start?  I hope so!   I worked late today and wasn't so sure that I felt like stamping this evening, but I really wanted to try the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and this pretty new designer paper was calling my name. 


My card is a 5-1/4" square of regal rose cardstock.  I've used an assortment of designer papers from the Sweet Nectar Designer Mat Pad from K & Company. (see photo below)   The large scalloped circle was cut on my Cricut using the Sweet Treats cartridge.  It's so saffron cardstock stamped with the linen background and distressed with versafine vintage sepia ink.  The sentiment is a wood block stamp from Hero Arts and the pretty little pink crocheted flower was made by my friend Debbie at The Paper Garden.  I've layered it onto two so saffron flower punches and tied it up with a button and the brown and white bakers twine.    If you need any bakers twine, please let me know as I've bought a HUGE spool of it!

Can you say PRETTY PAPER?!

Now I need to link up my card to the sketch challenge and check out all the others.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!    Smiles . . .
