Puppy Hugs

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this last Saturday in May. Can't believe that we buzzed through another month. 

Our state has gone into the  green phase of this pandemic so more restrictions have been lifted. Our church is resuming services tomorrow. There have been precautions taken but I am so happy to be able to go back to church. I believe spiritual life is an important part of who I am. And, scripture does say that we shouldn't forsake the assembling of the righteous. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I used the new Puppy in Garden Cart to create a thinking of you card. This one could even be used for a birthday card with a birthday sentiment on the inside. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:
I started this card with my sketch. I had one saved on my Pinterest board that I thought would work well with this die image. It calls for a square shape that I also liked. It changes things up just a bit.
Once the layout was decided on I chose my card colors. I decided to go with balmy blue cardstock (a medium blue) and use the matching gingham designer paper.
Card Base: 4 1/2" Square
Gingham Designer Paper: 4 1/4" Square

I cut the images in various shades of cardstock. For the garden cart I used a brown striped designer paper for added interest. 
The circle is the 2nd largest from the Stitched Circle set. I used a cloud stencil to sponge in some background clouds with tumbled glass distress ink. 
Sponged some mowed grass distress ink at the bottom of circle for a grassy area.
The "Big Hugs" sentiment is stamped in blueberry bushel ink (a dark blue).
For the rectangle strip across the middle, I used balmy blue ribbon that matched the designer paper. 
I used dimensional adhesive to secure the image circle. I wanted it lifted slightly off the designer paper. The side leaves are cut from the Planter Box & Seeds die.
To complete my card, I attached the image panel to the card base. Scattered a few blue glitter enamel dots - just because I like using them on a card (lol)!!
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time........God bless.
