Hi All!! I hope this post finds you all well!! It has been a tad bit warm this week but an enjoyable week for the most part here in Virginia.  Since it has been busy, I have not done as much crafting but today I would like to share a card I made for several challenges at Splitcoast Stampers.

This card is one I began to make for the Queen for the Day challenge (QFTD120 from a couple of weeks ago) casing Arizona Maine!! Congrats Angela!! Your gallery is amazing and I always am inspired by your creations!!

I chose this amazing card as my inspiration for this card. I kept the basic layout and doily but changed my stamps, colors, and added the stitching to meet today's WT383 stitching challenge. The inside of this card is a pedestal pop up.
My card uses the Flowering Faith and Loving Memories stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs. The dies used include Cheery Lynn Small Exotic Butterflies , Fanciful Flourish and Canadian Kaleidoscope .

The colors include Marina Mist, Old Olive, and Night of Navy. The frame is not only sewn but is embossed with Sizzix Plaid embossing folder.

The directions on how to make this pop up are here. It really is quite simple to make but adds a fun flair to a card.

The inside of this card uses the stamps Flowering Faith and Sharing Your Sorrow from Our Daily Bread Designs. The dies include Spellbinders Antique Frames (for the border along the bottom), ODBD elegant Ovals , and a Marianne Designs Butterfly. The designer paper is Stampin Up Holiday Treasures.

Challenges I am entering my creation in:
Divas by Design - anything goes WordArt WednesdaysEverybody-Art-Challenge - #201 Summer  Use It Tuesdays -  Emboss It (hoarded supplies- metallic paper and design paper from a few years ago) Card and Scrap WingsCard CupidsWings

Thanks for stopping by!! I so appreciate your comments and visits! Have a great week!!
