{The Perfect Day}

Today is going to be a beautiful day! The forecast says it will reach 71 F.  and we are going on a family picnic. But first I want to post my latest card, and play along with a handful of challenges. For my card today I used an adorable Stampabilities House Mouse stamp called "Make a Wish". I colored it with Pro-Markers, and then paper pieced the image for a nice 3-d effect. I used my Stampin' Up! chalks to make the nice blended blue/white background. I used DSP from one of my favorite DCWV stacks that has not seen the light of day in a long time, the "Sweet Stack". I machine stitched around the dges with my Janome Sew Mini.  The cute stitched felt flower and leaf are from the SU Sweet Pea line, and the other pink felt flowers I made with  my Cuttlebug. This card has way more bling and embellishments then I would normally use but it was fun putting it together all the same.  Today I am playing along with the following challenges:

DDCC #97 -  Recipe Challenge -
-3 pattern papers
-3 flowers
-3 sparkly things-rhinestones, pearls, gem, etc
and 1 ribbon

Papertake Weekly Challenge  #52 - sketch:
