HI everyone!

Hope all is well with you all.

Life has been quite the whirlwind here, but I am managing to get everything done that I need to, I think! LOL!

Today I want to share my contribution to the Pretty Palette Challenge 04

Now it’s my turn to share. Granted I’m a few days late, but better late than never right?

I have to say I had the best of intentions, but it turns out my kids and life had intentions of their own, making my ability to finally post, later than I wanted!

So without further delay…my card!

A Happy Life

Our friends are buying their first home the end of the month, and I wanted to send them a card, with a little gift card inside 😀

I loved the colors for this weeks palette, and actually had other ideas, but this is what transpired as I began creating. Funny how that happens huh?

I found that the Fresh Flowers © digital paper was the PERFECT match to the color combo 😀 So I used the flower pattern on my decorative panel layers.

I also used the Pretty Patterns Sketch 04 for this!

I chose to use the label from a Secret Surprise © for my layer. I cut it using the Secret Surprise Label ©.

 The house image from the Just For You ©  set, which I stamped, colored and cut, is for the additional layer to the right.

The butterfly is from Tending The Garden © , the flutter trail is from Fanciful Flourishes © .

My sentiment is from So Sentimental © ! I love it. It is the perfect sentiment for such a happy occasion.

I made my “grass”, and patterned paper along the bottom of my card by using the Puckered Up Patterns © . So simple and fun. I love making my own patterns, and using unexpected stamps for regular things, like “grass”.

So there you have my well intended card.

Come back tomorrow because we have the next Pretty Palette Challenge, and the team and I will be peeking the new digital images, being released on the 15th (Friday)!

See you then 😀
