Day 86 @ 365 Cards....

I only get a few days a week to play in my craft room and let all of reality slip away for a few hours. BUT...there is a challenge blog called 365 Cards that posts a challenge everyday (hence the name). I just don't have time to get there day after day. I always read what the challenge is in my Google reader and see the beautiful creations the design team made, but I never participate.

Well, today I did. The challenge was seemed simple, but had limitations. When I had completed the card, I felt like there was so much that I still needed to do with it, but according to the challenge. I.Was.Done.

The challenge was use one stamped image, one stamped sentiment, and one embellishment. Seemed easy, but at the end, I felt interrupted. Ohhhhh still turned out cute, and gave me a reason to use the darling stamps from the Unity Stamp Co. May Kit of the Month A Little Happy! I hadn't had a change to use it yet due to my drooling over all the new {Ippity} Spring 2010 new releases!

Here is what else I used:
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Pixie Pink (Stampin' Up)
Stamps: A Little Happy (Unity Stamp Co.)
Ink: Bashful Blue, Pixie Pink, Yoyo Yellow (Stampin' Up); Jet Black (Stazon)
Border Punch: Eyelet Border Punch (Stampin' Up)

The lace at the bottom of the sentiment is Paper Lace, a fun technique. You can see a video tutorial HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know you where here and let me know what you think of my card.

Have a good day!
