Joy to you!

Hey there!  Happy Sunday to you!  What a busy weekend but must keep plugging on.  I am excited to share my card today because it's my first card I really got to use lots of techniques on and also I really love it!


It's for Sentimental Sunday's theme which is something found in a garden.  Flowers are certainly found there and this paper from The Girl's Paperie is still a fave of mine.  Sniff sniff that they are no longer in production.  I need to scoop up all I can find before they disappear from the shelves. 

Removed for Publishing
How I made it: I sprayed my card with Maya Mist and then started layering.  A fave thing of mine!  I fussy cut the flower pattern out and added to the corner.  Next I added a Jenni Bowlin journaling spot cut in half.  I distressed both pieces with ink.
Then I made a little tag from cream card stock and added a brass eyelet and some twine.  I pulled out a KI stamp set that must be three years old and I never used.  The shame.  I stamped joy and the snowflakes (yes, I used a snowflake stamp on a summer inspired card) with a hot pink ink.   Love that color against the blue mist.  Then my last favorite technique is embellishing.

I added a ticket from Creative Imaginations with a rub-on from Jo-Ann's and two metal pink roses.  A lime green ribbon with a button and more floss and two stick pins.  Finally a few rhinestones to finish it all off. Viola!

I will be back tomorrow with a new card and some exciting news!
