Best Friends

Happy Saturday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We had a beautiful fall day here in Pittsburgh today. Perfect for outdoor activities or yard work. My hubby was out raking leaves and cleaning up his flower beds.
As for me I was inside creating cards. So it was a perfect day for me as well.

My card for today was one that I made for several challenges. The first was the inspiration challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week we visited the Liberty site for our card inspiration.
I chose this yellow moss silk scarf as my card inspiration.

I am also taking part in the "hope you can cling to" challenges on Splitcoaststampers. It's a good cause and there are prizes to be won. Get more info here.

This challenge is called the colors of hope. Green and yellow represent hope and brown represents comfort. So they are my card colors.

The layout is from the Wednesday MFT sketch challenge.

My image is from the MFT set "being cute is what I do". I paper pieced her outfit and colored her hair & face with blender pens and ink.

The designer paper I used is from Stampin-Up-pear pizzazz collection.

I scored the panel my image is layered on and then sponged with daffodil delight ink.

I used chocolate chip satin ribbon and some rhinestones to complete my card.

Well, time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day.

1.  Our creative corner has a fabulous faces challenge. Love the sweet face of the pure innocence images.
