PP #191 {You Make me Smile!}

Happy Tuesday! I am enjoying a full "home-day" today (that's right...absolutely no errands, appointments, runs, or places I need to be) except the bus stop at 4 p.m. to collect my daughter! These days do NOT happen very often for me lately so I am taking full advantage - in my craft room!

I do not usually make "for-fun" cards either. Being on several Design Teams, I seem to just get those cards done and blogged and I never find time to just PLAY! So, that's what I decided to do today....I found this interesting color combo at The Paper Players and I have to admit....when I first saw the swatch, I was a bit unsure. Then I dug out papers in each color and was pleasantly surprised how pretty it is!! All I could vision was flowers/stems!

Here is my CAS card using last week's Paper Players color combo:

I chose to use this awesome sentiment from Papertrey Ink...isn't that font just PERFECT for this card?! Ya, I thought so too! *wink*

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges as well:

Natalie & Amy - Embossing
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes + Embossing
Sweet Stamps - Embossing
Stamp and Create - Spring Flowers
Allsorts - Spring Flowers

Thanks for stopping in this afternoon - hope you have a fantastic day! We are scheduled for rain/snow over the next 36 hours - I am hoping they are wrong! Cheers!
