Vitamin D!

Oy.  This week has been pretty miserable weather wise.  It's starting to tamper with my mood.  I just want some sunshine...that lasts more than a couple of hours! :(  While I'm kept sitting inside, my card supplies have been keeping me busy.

Tonight, I really enjoyed creating a card for the Stars and Stamps challenge blog.  I love simple sketches because it allows you to become creative and add your own personal details.  I decided to use all plain colored papers for this card instead of using patterns.  All of the papers come from the CTMH Summer Celebration packet.

A Busy Bee

Last night, I learned how to make an easel card.  The task sounded rather daunting, but it really wasn't!  There was a great tutorial at the Stars and Stamps Blog that grabbed my attention and easily showed me the card dimensions that would be perfect for an A2 card.  Yay!

I am entering this card into the I Heart 2 Stamp Challenge Blog.  This is my first challenge with this group and I am rather excited!  I adore the color scheme of this card and I tried to use a few different embellishments to make the card "pop" a bit more.  Hope you like!
