Carly with a Bow

Welcome to my blog on this lovely Tuesday!  Have I got some news for you!  You might just see a new button my my blog and maybe have an idea of what that news might be.  YES!  You're so right!  I've been invited to join the Design Team for {Pin}spirational Challenge and of course I said yes!  What a fab group of ladies.  A couple of them belong to the same blogging group as me, so we're old friends.  I'm sure this is going to be lots of fun.

As you may have guessed from the challenge title, this has something to do with Pinterest.  Every week we have a new picture which is taken from Pinterest as the inspiration for our challenge.  This week it's this cute little whale picture and don't you just love the sentiment.
Don't you wish everyone could be happy all the time. What a wonderful world that would be. Here is my card.
I just went with the Happy part along with using the blue and pink colors along with a little yellow.  Our sponsor this week is Digi Garden and I have chosen to use Carly with a Bow for my image.  The sentiment is an old one that I dug out of my stash called Happy from The Angel Company.  I used Xpress It Blending Card to print out the image and the card base and mat are Stampin Up Rose Romance (retired).  I wish you could see this designer paper IRL.  It's absolutely gorgeous.  It's the Madeline collection from Prima.  I also used Stampin Up Soft Sky cardstock for the lower border which was punched using one of Martha Stewart's edge borders.  The flowers are from my stash and the leaf branches are punched using MS Fir Branch out of SU Pear Pizzazz (one of my favorite colors).  I used my Copic markers to color the image:  BG0000, BG000, BG02, BG10; E31, E33, E35; E50, E51, E53; R81, R83, R85; T2, T5, and T7.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
MarkerPOP Blog - Color Something
Stamp and Create - Anything Goes
Tammy's Scrapin Center - Anything Goes
