A Note For You..

Creating cards is always easier when you have a sketch to go by. And even easier when the colors are chosen for you as well. Well, at least I think so. So for today's card I got my inspiration/direction from two separate challenge blogs. The sketch is from Mojo Monday challenge #332 and the colors are from Color Throwdown #279.

Since I don't have the exact colors called for I substituted Slate for Basic Gray, Cotton Candy for Melon Mambo, Chantilly patterned paper for Pink Pirouette and Ruby for Real Red. I think they are pretty close.

The sentiment is from the Just For You stamp set and I just love using it on my cards. It has so many applications.

I always love to add at least a little bling to my card and I did so on this one with the Sparkles!

To see how I constructed this card, including my use of the Cricut, please watch this video.

Thank you for stopping by and I just love reading comments on my blog, so PLEASE, take a moment to say hello!

In the meantime, Happy Paper Crafting!
