Act of Kindness!

Hi everyone!! Happy Monday!!

This is a scheduled post...by the time it goes up I will be on my way to the hospital to have my little girl! I have several posts scheduled for this week, and as soon as I am able to pop in with pictures of my new little one, and of course, her big sister, my sweet MJ, I will be sure to do so!!!

Here is my card for today's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG74, which is this GORGEOUS inspiration picture brought to us by the Trendsetter of the Week, Iwona aka Chupa!

I had SO much fun making this card, even though it's more of a CAS card that I am used to creating! It would have probably taken me less time to create this card if I had used an image that had to be colored...when I make a CAS card I tend to stare at it over and over trying to see if it needs anything else! What can I say...I am a layers...and layers....and layers...and some more layers...kind of gal!

For my card, I was inspired by the colors, patterns and the layout of the inspiration picture. I started by stamping this solid floral image from Act of Kindess by There She Goes in Summer Sun onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and then cut it out and embossed it with Oval Nestabilities.

The patterned paper is So Sophie from My Minds Eye and I like the graphic pattern and how it kind of mimics the pattern in the inspiration photo. I added a border of Suede Brown Dark with the Die-Namics Open Scallop Die and added some piercing to the white border as well as around the focal image.

The sentiment, "How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it!", is also from Act of Kindness and I stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa onto my main Choice Snow White panel. I finished this one off with three white brads in the top left corner. Now I am not sure if maybe I could have snuck a ribbon on here somewhere...LOL!

We would LOVE for you to play along! Simply create a card or project inspired by this inspiration picture and link your creation to the TSG74 post on the There She Goes Blog!
