You Light Up My Life

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. This has been a whirlwind of a week.
I am working on my 2nd round submission for the Spellbinders Design Team Competition and also spent 2 days with my grandsons.
My son and daughter-in-law were both out of town at business meetings. It's baseball season so between the school teams and the community teams we were busy. But all in all it was a god time with the boys.
Then I have to get back to my project for Spellbinders.  I am so excited to have made it to the 2nd round of this competition. I was one of 37 selected to move on in the competition. I am happy with what I have created so far but there is still work to be done on it.
Now onto my card for today, This one that I made for the color challenge #426 on Splitcoaststampers. Peggy was our hostess and she chose a great trio of colors with regal rose, certainly celery and bermuda bay. She also wanted us to use an encouraging sentiment.
After the color choices, I picked my layout which is the Viva la verve week 1 sketch.

Then I chose my designer paper which is Stampin-Up’s regal rose designer paper pack for the background panel. I used the stylized flowers embossing folder on the paper.

And, I used the Stampin-Up retired welcome neighbor collection for the rectangle panel. The other panel is certainly celery and I used the floral fantasy embossing folder.

I used the MFT dizzy doily die cut with bermuda bay and cut a smaller circle in whisper white to add my sentiment. It’s from Verve and I received it free with my last order. I added a celery button and punched a butterfly for the top corner.
Well that's my card for today so until next time.........God bless.
