Way To Go--Sparkle and Shine

April 17, 2015

I am so excited to be able to enter the Sparkle and Shine Challenge this week.  I was so busy last week that I never got a chance to create any cards.  The Design Team truly sparkles each week, so stop by the site for tons of inspiration!!!!

I just adore the yoga girl stamp  ("WorkOut Stamp Set") by Simon Says Stamps!  Although I am not a big yogi, I have taken classes and wish I had the discipline to stick with it.  It is such a peaceful activity.  My problem is, I can not sit still long enough or focus on what I should be thinking about in class.  I am too busy thinking about card making, grand babies or task I should be completing at home!  LOL!  Maybe one day I will learn to be still!!!

After coloring the image with Copic Markers, I cut the layers for my cards.  I found this circle border die in my stash  I can't remember where I bought it.  Sorry!  I also need to be better organized with my supplies---- (That is another thing I think about if I am in yoga class) I cut it once in black and once in Bermuda Bay.  I paper pieced the circles back in the black die.  I love the pop of color it added to my card.  I cut the "Way To Go" sentiment 3 times and stacked them up for added dimension.  I loved the big circles on the paper from Heidi Swapp.  The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.  They always add so much fun to every card!  

SO glad you had a minute to stop by my blog.  Please let me know your thoughts on my card.  I cherish your comments!

Until next time!
