Before I get to the fun card for the day, I had to share a picture from today. We were getting ready to head out to my nieces 3rd brithday party. It was a lot of fun and we only had some sprinkles, so it was a success! Cece is 3 months old now.

For my card today I used the color challenge from Curtain Call.

Here is my card

What do you think? First when I saw the colors for the week I was at a complete loss! I don't even have the new in colors, so I had to imporvise, but WOW!!! Now that I see the card all done, I am digging this fun card.

I have been seeing a lot about letter press right now, so I took a crack at it. I used the PTI polka dot basics embossing folder. It is so much fun that the dot from the set polka dot basics fits perfectly. All I had to do was add color. It is hard to see the dimension this adds, but it is really neat irl. The ribbon is from a MFT ribbon share. I can't say I have used it ever before, but it was a lot of fun.

Now for the sentiment stamp, this is from the Ippity line of stamps by Unity. I adore this sentiment and the quality of the rubber and stamp is really nice. What do you think? I did sign up to sell it at CHA, but I have really been thinking about it. Do you know anyone who sells it? I could be convinced to be a buyer as well LOL!

It's a good life!
