{SSSC82 & CC Act 44} A Friend Brightens Everyday!

Happy Sunday & Smiles 2 U, My Friends!

Today, I've combined two of my favorite challenges ~ the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge hosted by Karen Giron at The Sweetest Thing...and the Curtain Call Color Challenge hosted by Stacey's Stamping Stage.

This is one of those cards that I almost gave up on.  Maybe I should have.  ;)  It's certainly not one of my favorites, but I decided to go ahead and show it to you anyway.  The sketch is great and the color combo is so bright and happy, but I'm not so sure it all came together for me.   What do you think?  Too much yellow?  Does it need some white space to tone it down?  Hmmm...

Another terrific sketch!

Did you notice the cute little ladybug with bling on her back? : )

For as simple as this card is, it sure took me a loooong time!  Sheesh!  : /

 the inside has a little bling too...a butterfly! 

Thanks so much for blogging by!  Please feel free to critique this one.  It needs it.
Pam : )
Quote for Today ~
With a butterfly kiss and a ladybug hug, sleep tight little one like a bug in a rug.

Pam, I think this is really pretty, even if you don't love it. Maybe it's the air today because I have a card sitting on my stamp table...a work in progress...that I started and keep leaving because I'm not loving how it's turning out. I guess we can't expect to knock it out of the park every time, eh? But I love all the sponging on your card and that sweet blingy ladybug. :)
