Romantic Silhouette

Happy Tuesday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Well, I am back from San Francisco. I returned on Saturday. It was an emotional departing but I have all the memories. And, a big plus is that my sweet Phoenix Daisy is coming to visit in July.

I was able to FaceTime on my Ipad on Sunday so I did get to see Phoenix and sing some of her favorite songs to her. She kept leaning to the screen and kissing my face. How I love this precious little baby girl.

So after a 30 day hiatus, I was able to stamp today. I felt really rusty and it took forever to complete my card but I managed to get one done. I created this one for the color challenge #378 on Splitcoaststampers.
Julia is our hostess and she chose a great trio of colors with certainly celery, pool party and daffodil delight.

I used a new Great Impressions silhouette stamp (G456S) for my image. It is stamped in the pool party color.

The designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "attic boutique" collection.

My layout is the current MFT sketch #74. I used the dizzy doily die and cut in daffodil delight. My scallop is also MFT and cut in daffodil delight as well.

My ribbon treatment is pool party seam binding and a Stampin-Up vintage brad center.

That's my card for today. It's late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. Until next time ...........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1. Make It Monday has an anything goes challenge.
2.  Ooh La La Creations has a "make it girly" challenge
3.  Cutie Pie Challenge wants us to use die cuts or punches. I used 2 dies.
