Make A Wish

I didn't get as much crafting time in today as I usually do as we've been out house hunting all afternoon - boy is it hard work going round trying to find the perfect house! It's either a great house in the wrong location (busy roads or too noisy from the nearby motorway) or a great location, but the rooms are just a bit too small! Argh! We'll get there eventually!

Anyway on to one of the two cards I did make this morning. This card is for My Besties Challenge to use a bow, My Besties UK Challenge #2 Bring Me Sunshine (I took the colours of yellow for the sun, turquoise blue for the sky, grey and white for the clouds for my sunshine inspiration), Friday MashUp's Challenge #121 to use Polka Dots (I used polka dot ribbon and DSP) and the word "Happy" somewhere and for Inkspirational's Challenge #31 Anything Goes.

And here's my gorgeous Princess Jasmine ready to cast your birthday wish...Love these new patterned papers from Stampin' Up. Not my usual colour combo at all, but just totally love it! I can see me using a lot of this paper!


Stamps: Princess Jasmine Digi from Sherri Baldy Designs, Just The Ticket, Embellishments, Mat Stack 1 Collection, Framed Out #7 all from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate, Eastern Elegance DSP, In Colors 2013-15 DSP Stack all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card

Inks: Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate, Crushed Curry all from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers

Accessories: Crushed Curry Polka Dot Ribbon (Retired), Silver Glimmer Card both from Stampin' Up, Just The Ticket Border Die from Papertrey Ink, Heart Banner Die, Scallop Border Die both from La-La Land Crafts, Frosted Lace Stickles, Labels 10 Nestabilities, Large Frill Frames #8 from Go Kreate, Anja's Vintage Decoration Die from Marianne Creatables

And that's all from me today folks! Back tomorrow with a huge mammoth crafting session to make up for today's smaller one :P
