Joy Is In The Journey

Good morning!  Hope your Saturday is off to a great start!  I've had my walk and now I'm back to post a card a made for a few challenges I like to do.  It is for Stamptacular Sunday #179 (sketch), Saturated Canary #25 (going dotty), Allsorts #171 (layers) and Crafts and Me Challenge #100 (add a flower).

Here is the sketch:


Here is my card:


I used SU Marina Mist for my card base and mats.  The patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Six By Six Everyday Flair 6x6 pad.  I picked all the dotty ones!  The fun image is Pack Light from Saturated Canary.  You can find her in Krista's store here.  I printed her on X-Press It and colored her with my Copics.  I added some polka dots with my Sharpie White Paint Pen and some Stickles here and there for a bit of sparkle.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A few Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card.

Here is a close-up:


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend and see you soon!

  1. Oh wow Carla, what a great way to make the dotted paper. So simple, and yet amazing! Love how you colored Packing Light - I had to buy her instantly when she was released. She is just so much fun to color.

  32. Stunning card. Gorgeous design. Designing is so tough job and i realize this after working for the Print VIP cards company. It needs so effort and concentration. I appreciate your work.
