Sweet little Something Sarah Kay creation!!

Hello Blogland!!!
How have you been these days?
Are your kids back in school yet?
I sent my little buddy to his first day of preschool today!!
So bittersweet!!! I hope he's loving every minute of it!!

I'm having a hard time making cards lately.
Finally, I have one to share, but it took no less than
a week to get it finished and photographed,
so at long last, here's a card I made using a Sarah Kay image:

I've painted the image with distress ink pads and placed little sprinklings of glitter in the flowers, is that foxglove?

The flowers are a mix of Prima and Wold Orchid Craft goods and I put a little stardust stickles on them also.
The sentiment is by Stampin' Up and I used a nesties die to make the shape for the faux tag.

The papers used are hmmmm..... let's see, plaid is Echo Park, floral is K & Co and the spots are 3 bugs in a rug. And of course, no project seems complete without a little bit of Martha Stewart doily punch action!! The cards base is Kraft cardstock.

I'm going to pop this in over at
Bearly Mine Challenges Flowers Flowers Flowers, oh yes, you know we love those!!!
Bunny Zoe's Monthly Challenge Easel Cards

Alright loves, must get back to the laundry!!
Thanks for stopping by today!!
hugs, stephanne
