~celebrate your day~

Hello blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It was one of those laid back summer days for me. I went to the gym for a workout session with my trainer. Whew! It was a workout and I definitely was exhausted when I left the gym.
My hubby was on a golf outing today so when I came home I immediately tuned in to the HSN 24 hr crafting event. I bought some Martha Stewart punches and as I type this the show is still going strong. I saw a lot of things I liked and almost bought but I restrained myself (lol)!!
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #487 on Splitcoaststampers. Becky is our hostess and she chose soft sky, soft suede, pear pizzazz and crisp cantaloupe for our color palette. Our option this week is to make a feminine card.

I just bought this Penny Black stamp at the Pittsburgh Rubber Stamp Show. And, I also just watched this tutorial on the Spellbinder blog by Linda Lucas using Labels 8 dies. So that was my card inspiration.

I used soft sky for my card base and cut it with the Spellbinders labels 8 die. The next layer is soft suede cut with the Spellbinders decorative labels 8 die. The image layer is cut with a smaller Spellbinders  labels 8 die and I sponged in soft sky before I removed it from the die.

Stamped my coneflower image in crisp cantaloupe and pear pizzazz. My sentiment is stamped in soft suede and is from the Verve set "poppy birthday".

I used some rhinestones for a little bling and added a bow made from pear pizzazz seam binding.
That's my card for today. Time to get back to my HSN craft until next time God bless.
