Baby Steps by Stampin Up and me

Happy Friday to you dear you.

It is still cold outside, but the sun is out and gives our living room such a nice warm glow. I am just being happy here, sitting on our couch with a warm cup of Chai tea enjoying this new day. Last night was a late night for this mom here. I came home around 12.30 pm. I went over to a dear friends house and we talked and shared our lives and dreams with each other and prayed. I love those moments of being able to connect to each other and to God.

This card I created with the Pals Paper Color Challenge #88 in mind. This week they inspired us to use the following colors: Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake. These are 3 of the colors that Stampin Up has in it's stunning color assortment. I loved using them.

And how fun is this, I gave this card has 8 layers. I love that sturdy feel of a card when it is just packed with beauty. (smile)

The image that you see is from the Baby Steps Stampin Up stamp set (#117092 - $10.95 ) I also used one of the Daffodil Delight flower brads (#119734 - $11.50 for 48 brads). I love when I can match the colors on my cards. It gives a card that 'balance'.. Hahaha, I never thought I would say that about a card. But I think that it's true.

I usually try to stick to 4 colors on one card, just to give it that clean and elegant look..

Anyhoo.. the weekend is coming closer and it's going to be my hubbies birthday. Fun fun! I already bought some white Hortensia's to brighten up our living room.. Aren't they gorgeous? I will add a photo of them, so you can enjoy them too :)

Now all I need is a card. So I have a job to do!

Inky hugs, Pauline
