Life and Love

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Somewhat of a busy day yesterday for me. Ethan (youngest grandson) was off school sick, and I had to go over there in the morning. We spent a somewhat quiet day together.
I was able to go to Aidin's (middle grandson) baseball game since I was on that side of town. They lost but it was an exciting last inning. Aidin hit a double to the outfield that started off the inning. I thought they were going to win but that didn't happen.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the CC429 on Splitcoaststampers. Becky was our hostess and she chose a very soft color palette with soft sky, pink pirouette and sahara sand.
My card is using 2 stamps sets. The flowers are Stampin-Up’s “secret garden”. I stamped in pink pirouette and tumbled glass distress ink. I don’t have soft sky ink yet. My sentiment is from the Verve set “stronger love”.

My background designer paper is from a retired soft sky designer paper pack. This is the first time I used it. Glad I held onto it now that this color is back (lol)!! The rectangle panel is sahara sand designer paper from the Stampin-Up “thoroughly modern” collection.

To complete my card I die cut a flourish in pink pirouette and added some pearls. I also die cut a butterfly in soft sky. Both these dies are from Cheery Lynn designs.
Well that's my card for today. So until next time.........God bless.
