A Note from Me to You!

Hello dear friends!
Today I once again am joining a few challenges together to create my card.

I started with the sketch from the current Mojo Monday Challenge.

Next came my color choice which came from the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge mood board.

The idea of Embossing came from the Ooh La La Challenge
I made my own background for the Simon Says Monday Challenge and
created Lots of Layers for the Dream Valley and Dare 2B Artzy March Challenges.

I love (when I have the time) to put a couple (or a few) challenges together like I have today to create a card.  It's always amazing to me how well they come together.  It's always a delight when I get to the finished product! 

I hope you're having a great day!
Remember to stop back tomorrow when I will have a new creation for the Sisterhood of Crafters.  We will have another UNIQUE & FUN challenge theme for you!!

Till then . . .

Papers:  White cs,  Dark Brown cs, Rose cs, Teal cs

Wow! A nice combination of challenges to create this pretty thing! That sure is a cute sentiment circle with the flowers inside. I thought right away that it looks like JustRite and sure enough. After my room is finished I might switch from morning computer to morning stamping. I'd probably get more done. Trouble is, then I might not get to the computer since I share it with hubby. I love morning stamping, though.

Oh, Dar, that's a fantastic use of that sketch and those colors! Beautiful die cuts and embossing, my friend. :-D
