Live for Today

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is going OK so far.  It was quite a stormy night here, but although it is still raining, there is no thunder, at least at the moment.  I am popping in quickly this morning to share a card I made for a couple of challenges. 

Here is what I made:

My doily easel card base was cut from Olive cardstock using the Doily Easel Card 2 cut file generously shared as a freebie by Bird's Cards.  The patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Mabel 6x6 pad.  The gorgeous stamp is Posy by Norma J. Burnell for Sweet Pea Stamps.  I was lucky enough to have won the rubber stamp on Norma's Facebook page.  I stamped it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added a bit of Stickles here and there for some sparkle.  The sentiment is from A Piece of Heart. Thanks to Sharon, who shared it as a freebie on her blog here.  I didn't add any more embellishments so the image could take center stage.

Here is a close up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Looking forward to visiting with you a little later this morning.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sweet Pea Stampers (shaped cards)
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #221 (shaped cards)
Incy Wincy Challenge (things with Wings)
Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans Art Contest (anything goes with SPS)
Crafting By Designs Monthly Challenge (anything goes)

Have a great day and see you soon!
