wish big

Hi everybody! I hope you’re having a great week – it’s all good here with absolutely no complaints! The hubs started this year’s garden several months ago and tends to it several times a day. We live in a rural area and we’re not close to a farmer’s market, so this is the second year in a row that he’s grown our veggies, and they are SO good! Thankfully he has green thumbs!

I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #60 – July Anything Goes! The cut file I used for this awesome birthday card was in the CanvasWorkspace Project/Pattern Collection, and when I saw it I just had to make a colorful one!

I cut the card base from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and the rest of the pieces from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic 105# Amethyst, Aquamarine and Lagoon cardstock; CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Tangy Orange and Razzleberry cardstock; CutCardStock Basis 80# Dark Purple and Basis Orange; CutCardStock 80# Granny Smith cardstock; and The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad. The fun part is always assembling and watching the project come together, and this card was no exception! Using CUTplorations Skinny Sentiments, I die cut the sentiment from CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock. The finishing touch was adding several tiny iridescent gemstones.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip of the patterned paper used on the front. I found this hilarious rubber stamp among my Great Impressions stamps so I stamped it in Catherine Pooler Serenade ink and layered it on a larger piece of the patterned paper.

And one more peek… SO loving how this turned out! I’m all about colors and this sure fits the bill!
