Blooming With Love



Good Tuesday Morning Peeps. Hope your week has started out well. It is another cloudy cool day here. Rain is predicted for most of the week.

Today's card started out to be for
Beates Weekend Sketch Challenge, hosted this week by the awesome Sharon Harnist.

I, of course, varied the sketch a bit by adding my sentiment circle, so am not sure it still qualifies for the sketch challenge.

Anyway, I wanted to use some of my new paper, that was a gift from Lois, The level 1 Hostess paper pack. Very pretty colors. This one is brocade blue, a color I hardly ever use. I started the card with abase of brocade and followed that with chocolate chip and some brocade blue DS paper. I water colored some flower pots and flowers from the Blooming with Love set. I also used some other fun and new goodies, the corduroy buttons and brads. I added some sticky pearls to the flower centers.

I have sure been struggling with cards lately, I am just a little burned out I think, along with not feeling well, family problems and me not sleeping, it is taking a toll on my mojo!!! Darn it all!!!

Well, enough with that messiness, Thank you so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Vicki

Your card is very cool. Don't you just love using colors you haven't used before. Glad you made good use of the papers and you like them.

Hugs,
