Hi Everyone!

I have two wonderful things to share with you today :). The first is my card for this week's challenge over at Inspired By Stamping. Last week was the first time I took part in the challenge and I had such a wonderful time that I decided to take part again. Everyone was so sweet and encouraging... such a lovely group of very talented ladies! I am definitely hooked! If you haven't joined in on the fun yet, you should definitely give it try. Joanna and the lovely ladies on the design team are the sweetest ever and they make you feel so special and welcomed!

The second thing I want to share with you today is that I am very honored and excited to tell you that my card was selected as the winner for last week's Inspired By Stamping Inspiration Challenge! Can you believe that??? I am still in shock!!! I can't believe out of all the amazing cards, my card was chosen. I want to thank Joanna and her talented design team for selecting my card and making my day! I received some bad news earlier in the day, so it really lifted my spirits to find out my card was chosen and to read all the sweet comments. Thank you so much ladies!

Alrighty now, back to my card for this week's challenge...
For my card base I used Lifestyle Craft's Nesting Frame 8 and PTI cream card stock. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and choose colors from My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline paper pad. I usually tend to stick to my neutrals and pinks, so for me choosing pastel yellow, aqua, and peach was a rare occasion for me. To create my handmade flower, I layered a Prima crochet flower, some May Arts crochet lace, a burlap string bow, and a pale yellow flower from IAR. My framed sentiment was created with Spellbinders Label 15 framed out using Spellbinders Classic Square and the gorgeous IBS Heartfelt Gratitude set. I also used some beautiful crochet lace and pearl flower trim from Karlas001Etsy, a resin embellishment from Melissa Frances, some jute rope, bling, and flowers. The super pretty peach flower is also by IBS and can be purchased here.

I almost didn't make it to this week's challenge. I had so much going on this week and had only a few hours left with no card made. Thankfully this week's challenge was a sketch challenge. Here is the sketch:
Thank you so much for stopping by! If you get a chance, stop by the Inspired By Stamping Inspiration Challenge to check out all the gorgeous creations and join in on the fun! I hope everyone has a happy crafty weekend!
