Thinking of You!

Happy Saturday!  I have a card to share!   We have a mixture of snow and ice here in North Carolina.  We managed to get some snow on top of the ice pellets from yesterday.  I know it is not anywhere close to as bad as it is in some places, for that I am very thankful.  Since I am forced to stay inside, I had some time to get crafty! 

I decided I needed to stamp something that makes me think of warmer weather.  I am playing along with this week's ColourQ Challenge.  I sponged the white panel in a warm yellow.  I stamped the flowers from PTI Flower Favorites using a MISTI so I could get perfect placement and use two different colors.  I stamped the leaves in kraft to comply with the color challenge.  I finished with a Tag Its Quilted die sentiment strip and white embossed a sentiment from PTI Vintage Picnic Sentiments set. 

I added some foam tape to the card panel, flowers, and sentiment strip.  I finished the card with some loose threading and a few clear sequins. I am using the sketch from CAS(E)this Sketch.  I am playing along with Addicted to Stamps: Make Your Mark Challenge!  I sponged the background!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
