Good Morning!

Oh, it was so nice this morning to be able to get up and be creative before anyone else was awake. I completed this card while watching "Leverage" from last night and drinking a cup of coffee. I even managed to get it done before the dog got up too. Yep, I was up THAT early. At first, I thought I must be out of my mind; but then I realized it was the perfect time because I wasn't distracted by the kids or tired like I am in the evenings. The result turned out pretty well, at least I think so! When I first started thinking about this card, I was having a difficult time trying to figure out exactly how I wanted to place all the elements. I don't know about you; but I play around with the pieces of a card, forever before I finally decide to glue them all down. Once I started, however, it actually came together a lot quicker than I thought it would. I only used one stamp for this card and it was the polka dotted stamp from Martha Stewart that I used on the Simply Chartreuse piece. I stamped it in Versa Mark and then embossed it with Clear Embossing powder.
This card fits the following challenges:

Get Sketchy: Sketch #54
Raise the Bar: URLooking Good. (Create a card inspired by your blog)
Our Creative Corner: Use numbers or letters
Speedy the Cat: Use five of something. I used 5 flowers

Pile it on: Layers
