Be Joyful Always.

Hello my friends and happy Wednesday. I have a late middle week card, LOL. I tried to stamp earlier, but I had a billion things to do, finally I sat down this afternoon when DD was napping and started creating. I used 2 of the new SU In Colors: Soft Suede and Dusty Durango, pretty pretty colors!! My sketch comes from one of my favorite blogs 2 Sketches 4 You . Since I saw the sketch last Monday I knew I had to create this card, but I was waiting for my Card stock. Finally CS arrived and I didn't have time, life is not always fair, uh?

My card is very self explanatory I think. The Pretty paper is from Out & About Collection (My Mind's Eye). The sentiment is from smaRTworks "Buttoned Up, it was heat embossed in gold ep, the borders were distressed and sponged with gold ink. The back piece is Soft Suede color and cut the borders with Provo Craft Scissors. Finally I added a piece of White CS that was previously dry embossed in the Cuttlebug machine, easy peasy, :)
If you have any questions , let me know.
