~Congrats Tori~

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I woke up to snow this morning. But just on our grass and sidewalk not the streets. The sun came out and it was gone by noon. The temps stayed very cold all day but, a warm-up is on the way starting tomorrow. So looking forward to some warmer weather.
The weight loss challenge is winding to a close at my gym. I am currently in 2nd place. Someone moved ahead of me after our weigh-in last Saturday. I am at a 13% loss and she is at 14%. The final weigh-in is this Saturday. So I will see where I end up.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made especially for a niece of mine. She won an award in her school for overcoming adversity. I am so proud of her. I will send her this card with a gift card inside.
I am the hostess this week on Splitcoaststampers for the color challenge #471.  I  chose a medley of colors for our challenge. I really like all the colors in the Stampin-Up “sweet sorbet” designer paper (black, pistachio pudding, crisp cantaloupe, pool party, sahara sand and summer starfruit) so I chose all of them. I gave the option to pick 3 to work with or use all 6 of them.

My card started with the “sweet sorbet” designer paper which I used for the card background. Since I am making this card for my 16 year old niece so I wanted it to be a little trendier.
I thought the layout from this week’s Viva la Verve sketch was perfect for a teenage girl card.

The angled panel is pool party and I used the Stampin-Up chevron embossing folder. My black circle is cut with the MFT dizzy doily die.

Sentiment is from the Tim Holtz set "good thoughts". Stamped in black and added to a Spellbinders labels 8 die cut in pistachio pudding.

Added a black feather cut from an Impression Obsession die and some pool party ribbon to complete my card. 
Well, that's my card for today. It's late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless.
