You Brighten My Day

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today we are having a new monthly challenge on the Great Impressions Stamps Blog. Our theme this month is "green". And, if you win the challenge you have a chance to guest design with us. Drop over to the blog and check out the other design team projects.

I took the challenge quite literally and made a green card. I used the image Japanese Silver Grass (G3398) and stamped directly on patterned paper.  I used a Sakura pen to add some sparkle on the leaves. My sentiment is "You brighten my day" (A127). Both are available in the online store.

My card layout is this weeks MojoMonday 282 sketch. I chose the round card option. 

I used my Spellbinders scalloped circle die and placed it on the card stock so it doesn't cut all the way through. The next time I do a round card I will take a photo.

I punched a few butterflies from the designer paper and added some pearls to complete my card.

Hope you can join the challenge fun this month. So until next time........God bless.
