Blessings

I have been having such fun watching the Summer School tutorials over on the My Favorite Things Blog.  They've been sharing some really GREAT lessons to help you make cards that are eye-pleasing and laid out in a way that causes you to really think about where you are placing your elements.  This particular card was based on their Movement/Flow Tutorial.  I will admit that I really lifted Julia's sample card; but then again, I've always been a big fan of her art.  I've now got a BIG wish list for My Favorite Things, and as soon as the wedding is over I will be treating myself to some new goodies.
I used a kraft card from The Kraft Journal, some Prima flowers, Crate Paper Journey patterned paper, May Arts Natural Burlap Jute, a JilliBean kraft journalling tag, wooden feathers from Prima, and a Cheery Lynn Designs sentiment die-cut (Blessings).

I'm sharing my card in the following challenges:

My Favorite Things Blog - Summer School Lesson/Movement and Flow by Julia Stainton - I definitely fell in love with Julia's sweet card, and took her lead on this one!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Challenge: Don't Cut/Just Paste - I didn't cut anything, but just pasted on my elements with no cutting.  The DT had amazing samples, didn't they?

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Use Your Favorite Technique and/or Product" - I chose to use lots of great Prima products on this one (one of my most favorite products are their fabulous flowers), and Simon Says Stamp carries LOTS of them!

Cheery Lynn Designs - Challenge #189 - "Keep It Krafty" - I used a kraft note card, and a kraft journalling tag.  The Cheery Lynn Designs die-cut I used is their ADORABLE Blessings Sentiment Dies (Set of 2).

Classy Cards 'N Such - Challenge #89 - Father's Day - I used a Cheery Lynn Designs die-cut sentiment which is sold at CCNS.  In fact, all their Cheery Lynn dies are currently 50% off.  Stock up now!

My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge - I love this blog, and LOVE their fabulous products.  I've been learning so much from their Summer School classes, and couldn't resist playing along.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a blessed week!
