Whimsical Wings

Today's card shows the whimsical side of my stamping style. I used two of my fun Hambo stamps for this card. I made it for a few challenges:

Today's SCS Inspiration Challenge 142: Marimekko Umbrellas. I chose this umbrella as my inspiration. Isn't it a fun design?

Dirty Dozen/Fan Club Product & Materials Focus: Bling

Yesterday's SCS Limited Supplies Challenge 182: Oldies But Goodies! I used an old set, Simple Shapes, as my background.

The picture is a closer view, as the card measures 4.25" square. The way I cropped and resized my picture, it looks giant!

I am getting pretty excited, as ONE WEEK from today, Holly {aka Toy on SCS} will be staying with me! She is moving from New York to Colorado, and she and her family will be spending the night this coming Friday, before heading on to Loveland, CO, on Saturday. Mothermark, are you ready for her to descend on your beautiful town? I can hardly wait to meet her! And I will be sure to post pictures!

Thanks for stopping by today!
