♥ So Very Sweet ♥

I hope you all are having a very sweet Thursday! What a beautiful day it is here! Feels like Summer! Defintely put me in the mood to create a card using some bright and cheery colors!


I made my card using the current color challenge at The Play Date Cafe. Love this color scheme and what a fabulous inspiration photo! And make sure you check out who there awesome Guest and Sponsor is this week!  What a talented and special young man!!


I used some new papers by Echo Park as well as a lace applique, some seam binding, flowers and a stick pin pennant.

I was also inspired by this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. It is to create a card using the same colors as well as a pennant, flag or banner. I just couldn't resist this sweet inspiration photo! It feels funny to be playing along as a participant and not on the DT!! :)

I hope you all have a fabulous nighty night!

hugs...
