have a lovely day...

Hey friends!!   Wow... we are having some spectacular weather right now and it looks like it will extend into the weekend!!  Love having this lovely weather!  But to be honest it has put me in a bit of a creative slump (I want to be outside!!)!   I'm hoping that all the lovely happy mail today  will help me out of it.  So I busted out some of my new things and made this little card.   The layout is based on the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the colors are from the current Color Throwdown challenge.  I'm also going to post this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (anything goes) and Word Art Wednesday (anything goes).   Most of the happy mail I received came from Simon Says Stamp and I used the lovely stamp and die set called "Lovely Spring".  I followed the FMS layout pretty closely except I decided to use the wreath image instead of a square.  After die cutting the wreath I placed it on my cardstock piece so I could position the sentiment properly.  After stamping the sentiment I placed the piece in a woodgrain embossing folder and did some partial embossing.  Layered up all the little die cuts and I was done.  Simple, but rather sweet I think.

 
 
Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white, Simon Says Stamp fog; Stamps and dies:  Simon Says Stamp; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Yellow sequin; woodgrain embossing folder
