So Very Blessed

Good morning! Just thought I would stop in this morning to share a quick card:

I also wanted to link up with the new Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes (include American Crafts if you want to):

I am also linking up with the Simon Says Monday Challenge - I ought to use that more (finally dug into my scrap box and used some of those!):

Finally, linking this up with Word Art Wednesday's Anything Goes.

I used some American Crafts pattern paper for my background, then some scrap paper from Crate Paper that I cut with Avery Elle's Pinked Elle-ments dies. Then I used some vellum to cut Paper Smooches Deco Bag Die, and heat embossed my sentiment from Neat and Tangled's So Very Blessed stamp using Ranger Platinum embossing powder. I added a twist of hemp cord inside the bag, affixed a pre-made bow from Recollections that I had in my stash, and finished off with some sequins and enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!


  1. I absolutely love how this card turned out! The patterned paper was so happy and energetic without being "too much." I love how you paired it with that subtle diagonally-striped paper. It's a gorgeous combo! I thought the loops of hemp were so cleverly done and the sequins add just the right bit of bling. The sentiment is thought-provoking and inspiring and I love how you heat-embossed it with the platinum powder. Your attention to detail is fantastic (like the zig-zag edges) and this card definitely made me smile. Amazing work on this and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
