Be Merry

Hi my friends.  I've been a little low on the mojo the last week or so since Perfect Sentiment is on vacation for the month of July.  Decided just to check out my list of challenges that I like to go to.  First I came across this color combo challenge from Cupcake Inspirations.

Next I needed a sketch and so went to My Favorite Things - Wednesday Stamp Club and found their new sketch for this week.
Then I just had to find some designer paper to work out the colors and came up with this card.

  • Sentiment - My Favorite Thiings - Candy Cane Kisses
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight; Xpress It Blending Card
