Joyful Day


 

Morning Everyone!  Today, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Tuesday Morning Sketches 254.  For my take on the sketch, I turned the sketch on its side and trimmed the bottom of the card's front before adding a scallop border to the edge.  The strip of white showing on the bottom is actually the inside the of the card.


The images, sentiment, and pink digi paper are from Doodle Pantry's Joyful Day set.  These elements were merged and grouped in a Word Document.  After printing, the grouped image was die cut with a Spellbinders oval die and framed with die cuts made with the help of an oval scallop and floral oval dies by Spellbinders.  Finishing touches include some Spirelli string art, leaves made with a Sizzix die and a MS punch, as well as a bow with rhinestone embellishment.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Cards Galore June Challenge -- Us a stamp or digi or your project
Dragonflies Dreams Challenge 6 -- Anything With Wings
The Crafting Cafe June Challenge -- Love and Marriage
Open-Minded Crafting Challenge #12 -- Something with Wings
Make My Monday Challenge -- Color Theme - Pretty in Pink 

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
