Wishing You Sunshine...

Happy Monday everyone! Hope your day is great and full of sweet surprises. Look what I have for your today ~ a new card…!! I have created this card for our new challenge at The Pink Elephant challenge blog. Have you visited it yet? It is full of inspiration and amazing challenges....




This week, we were challenged to create a card using the following recipe: use the color red, scallops, and a bow.

 So, here is what I came up with!



First, I will start with the patterned papers. The tiny red polka dot paper is from PTI and the one with the little flowers on it is from October Afternoon. The image is from PTI too! I just got it a couple days ago and wanted to use it on this project.




To create the scalloped border at the bottom of the card, I used my Fiskars edge punch. Love that punch!!! I happened to have this cute scalloped stamp, so I stamped it on the white cardstock with light blue chalk ink.




And finally, I made that pretty bow and placed it near the scalloped image. Then, I added the little pearl on the bow and stamped the sentiment.

That’s all for me today. Thanks for stopping by!!! Hope you will join us this week and play along with us at TPE!!

Oh, girls… I would like to thank you for taking the time to write me your comments. Your kind words are greatly appreciated!!
