Hi!  I'm thrilled to introduce you to my new blog - the first I've done.  I hope to have art and thoughts that will inspire you, make you happy, and give you peace.  My first work that I would like to post is a card that I recently submitted for a few challenges - also my first attempt!  What fun it was!  I have the challenge bug, for sure, now!  But, that's okay - it will get me creating and learning more, which I am truly excited to be able to do.

 The first challenge was on Sharon Johnson's blog for her Stamp Simply 158 challenge and for Crazy 4 Challenges' bling challenge at .

Here is the gorgeous inspiration picture Sharon posted: 


and here is my interpretation:

The items used on this were a base of Bazzill chocolate cardstock, SU copper metallic, and then DCWV Mariposa (isn't that paper pak gorgeous?!).  The sentiment is retired SU in Versafine Vintage Sepia on SU Vanilla cs and cut out with Spellbinders Labels 13.  The "bling" is from Michael's and the gold metallic with red rhinestone ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.  A sheet of SU Vanilla was cut with the EK Success fleur de lis punch for the inside of the card.  The butterflies and sentiment were popped up for dimension.

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Have a blessed week!
