You are a Treasure

Hello my friends!!

I hope you have all been doing well. I have thoroughly missed blogging and sharing with you; but I have gotten a lot of things done that I needed to during my time off and was even able to do some planning ahead. I was going to wait and post on Monday; but then I decided that I wanted to go ahead and share my card for Friday's Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge. This is actually the first non-Christmas card I've put together in a while. I designed the card around the pattern papers and added the colors to coordinate with them. I had a hard time trying to pick a stamp set I wanted to use, however. I finally decided that I wanted to use the Sweet Treats set; but I turned it vertical and then stamped the sentiment from "Sunny Days" in the center.
Anyhow, I hope that you like it; and I hope that you come back tomorrow when I start a special project to share with you! As always the supplies are linked below. I did use some retired SU paper that is no longer available: Apricot Appeal and Ruby Red.

Challenges:
CCEE stampers: 2 Diecuts or punches
PaperCrafting Journey: Embossing.
Sarah Hurley Challenge: Buttons
Shelly's Images: Anything Goes
Annabelle Stamps: Buttons and Bows
Fabulous Friday: Die Cuts
