Just For Fun!!

Good morning everyone....hope all is well with you!! I had a great day yesterday...stamped all afternoon and made such a mess!! Why can't I make a card or 2 without trashing my whole craft room???? I have a 4' x 8' island in the middle of my area and it's covered...I mean ya can't even see the counter top...yikes!!! I guess it's no stamping for me today...just cleaning :(  Anyway.....

I made this card for the iSpy Sketch challenge...this was a new challenge to me and I just love the sketch!!! I used papers from October Afternoon's Red Light Green Light...the scalloped diecut is from My Favorite Things as is the rolled rose die. Oval Nestabilities were used for the Crafty Secrets sentiment from their Glamour Girls set and sewing, twine, green ribbon for the leaves, and a pearl finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - dies or punches
2. Lexi's Creations - focus on the sentiment
3. Stampalot Challenge - Happy Birthday
4. 2 Sisters Challenge - birthday fun

Thanks for visiting....have a great day!!!

I think all crafters are messy, I think it has something to do with layering, so we add layers of mess to our mess! Wonderful card Joan, Great DP and you used an awesome punch, very pretty!

What a wonderful card, love all the paper and the colors. Your room should be trashed, that is the best way to be creative.
