JOY!

This is my 4th post today. Can you believe that? Izzy and I have been together this whole weekend and I haven't had a lot of work to do, so it has been wonderful. Yesterday I did a few cards, but then we went outside and worked for an hour in the yard. It felt so good to get out in the sunshine and get active! Needless to say I didn't get any pictures taken, so there is a lot today.

This next card is my favorite so far of the weekend. I used three challenges for this one. The first was for this fun color challenge for the Verve Spring Fling challenges.
Here is my card
I did this one this morning and after being outside for even a short time, I was so inspired. As the I started the day today, I also say the stamping sisters in Christ challenge to make a card about joy. The third challenge was for PPA, which was a challenge to think spring. Well how easy with these fun colors. It all came together quickly since I am so joyful to have it at least feel like winter has broke. I adore all of God's seasons, but there is nothing better than feeling like spring is here!
The other fun thing on this card I picked up from Dawn McVey. I adore her blog and am always in awe of her creations. One of the things she does so well is combining background stamps to get really neat effects. A few weeks ago I saw her do this and it has been in my need to try box since then. This card just came together from there. Hope you enjoy it.
It's a good life!

Great card! I love those colors, too! I especially like how you used the flower shaped buttons as the flowers in your stamp. That's such a neat idea. Love the card!
Thank you for sharing it with us at SSCC!
Blessings!
