Happiness

Hi there!  I'm back with another quick post today to share my first DT card for Create With TLC.   My card is also for this week's challenge at The Play Date Cafe #113 (juniper, mint and vanilla) and the first challenge at the brand new The Crafter's Cafe Challenge (new year/new beginnings). 

Here is the PDCC Color Story:


Here is my card:


My interpretation of "new year/new beginnings" for The Crafter's Cafe Challenge is that this is my first card for a new design team in a new year.  I started with a card base of SU Soft Sky and layered with Sage Shadow and patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Portobello 6x6 pad.  My image is a digi from the new Words To Live By Set by Create With TLC.  It can be found in Paulette's store here.  I printed it on Cryogen White and colored with it with Copic markers.  I sponged around the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink to age it a little.  The image is matted with a Spellbinders Lacey Squares diecut.  I added lots of ivory pearls and a triple-loop bow of dyed seam binding to finish my card.

Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog!  I really appreciate it!  I'll be back bright and early tomorrow morning with my DT card for the Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site.  Hope to see you then!
