Happiness . . .

Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone!
Before all the grilling begins, I wanted to share a card with you
that was actually a recommendation from my friend Diane (Nellie's Nest).

I was having a difficult time getting my mojo started and she recommended I just picked a challenge and played along ... just like she was doing!  LOL  So I looked over the list (which I stole from her blog, lol ... thanks Diane) and decided upon the Sketch Saturday Challenge.  Here's their sketch for today:

 I knew exactly what image I wanted to use for this sketch and I can always use additional wedding cards in my stash.  The focus on today's card is from a sheet of beautiful images by Sandra Kuck (an Ohio native) produced by Nellie's Choice and called 'Waiting'

I've embossed the two background panels with different Cuttlebug embossing folders ... Swiss Dot and Textiles.  The sentiment is Penny Black and the ribbon is Offray pink satin.    To die cut my circles I've used the Memory Box 'Stitched Circle Layers' #30036.  I've popped up the image & sentiment for a little added dimension.

 Well there you have it!  
NOW the labor day weekend fun can begin ... lol!
I hope you have a FABULOUS weekend ... and be SAFE!!

Challenges to share in:
Creative Fingers Challenge - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiment Challenge - Anything Goes + Sentiment
