This Is The Day.....

Hi There!  Hope everyone's week is going well.  For me... so far so good.  Got my oldest off to camp yesterday so my little one gets mommy and daddy all to himself!   I think he is pretty happy about that!



A card for a couple of challenges.  ODBD's Shining the Light challenge and the Paper Players.  The challenge this week at PP is to use the following colors:  Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Rose Red.   When I saw the combo my heart kinda sank because I tend to be far to literal when it comes to colors, meaning I MUST USE THE EXACT COLORS!   So... I have been trying to work on that and be a bit more flexible.  To that end I rummaged through my extensive collection of 6x6 paper pads and came up with two patterned papers that were good matches.  Thankfully my literal half was appeased by the fact that I do have Pretty in Pink ink and cardstock and Regal Rose ribbon, otherwise I don't think I could have gotten the card made!  The ODBDSLC challenge is to use a tag on your card.  That part was easy peasy because I have several ODBD tag sets and the matching die.  For the card I used the tag from the Tulip Tag set and the verse (one of my favorites) from the Daffodil Tag set.   The layout is based on Chupa's current Sketchbook Saturday sketch, although I did move the bow and the placment of the roses. 

Thanks for taking a peek...  and I just want to say a thank you to those of you who have recently started following my blog.  I really appreciate it!

Rosemary, I bet your little one is so enjoying his mommy and daddy time. How special for all of you.
I love this card, it has a vintage feel, because of the DSP you used, but with clean lines. Gorgeous!
So glad you joined the Paper Players again this week
