Brighten Your Day

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

Getting so close to wave goodbye to the month of March and welcoming April. Spring is sprouting up all over our area. Today I saw the first butterfly of the season. 

And we have so many robins in our neighborhood. They usually make a nest on the support beams underneath our deck. Nothing has started as yet, but I expect to see Mama Robin begin her building process soon. I just love the new life that is represented in this Spring season.

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for color challenge #836 on Splitcoaststampers.  Jeanne was our hostess and she chose highland heather, pineapple punch and granny apple green for her color trio. Optional was to use dots. I used enamel dots.

For my card I used elements from the April 2019 Sentimental Rose paper pumpkin kit. I stamped the rose image in highland heather ink and then fussy cut. The leaves are stamped in granny apple green and also fussy cut.

My background text paper was part of the kit. I cut it on an angle and layered it on whisper white cardstock. To join the 2 panels I used yellow ribbon.

The sentiment is from the June 2020 paper pumpkin kit- "a box of sunshine". I stamped in highland heather ink. I am sending this off to a good friend in Arizona who was just involved in a car accident that totaled her car. I just want her to know that I am thinking and praying for her. 

To finish off my card I scattered a few pineapple punch enamel dots. And that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
