You Are Fabulous

Hello everyone!  I seem to have neglected my blog lately so today I decided to make a  card based on this weeks  Cards Patterns sketch # 127.

I wanted to make a bright and cheerful card so I started by using this pretty background paper from The  Girl's Paperie.  I then stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Ippity stamp set Where You Should Be.  The rolled flowers were made using gingham and polka dot paper.  As much as  I love the look of these flowers, I have the worst time making them!  I figure one of these days, I'll get the hang of  making them, at least I hope will!   I then punched out some leaves, added a butterfly and some lace and the card was complete. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you live in Massachusetts, don't forget about the tax free weekend tomorrow and Sunday.  Enjoy the rest of your day and have a great weekend!
