What's Up?

Good morning! Super excited to share a card with you this morning - totally inspired by a challenge, and one of those ones that just came together absolutely effortlessly! That happens so rarely - and I always LOVE it when it does happen!

Here is the lovely challenge photo - beautiful, isn't it? It is for the current Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge:

I used a new stamp set I hadn't had time to ink up yet from Altenew called Geometric Menagerie, and a bit of simple watercolors. I thought it was a perfect stamp for the geometric feel to the inspiration photo! I added some pattern paper from Basic Grey, a circle of vellum (to capture the circle in the inspiration photo) cut with a Lil' Inker's die, and a few randomly trimmed pieces of MFT cardstock. Finished off with a few large sequins from a Theresa Collins pack I picked up a while back at Joanns, and a little splash of coral Heidi Swapp Color Shine to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
