I'm Back!

I've been out of town the last couple of weekends for family reasons and am sooooo behind (including all of the wonderful tagging that has been going on). However I did have a few minutes to make a bright and cheery card using the SCS Sketch Challenge #171. The sketch was giving me a bit of a fit so I modified it and added the Creamy Caramel layer. :)

Quick notes: Main color combo is Pumpkin Pie, Creamy Caramel, Summer Sun and Very Vanilla. Main image was stamped in Black StazOn on Very Vanilla, colored with markers and cut out with the Coluzzle cutting system and oval template. A slightly larger oval was cut from Summer Sun and used for the next layer with paper piercing added around the edge. A piece of Creamy Caramel cardstock was stamped with the Sprinkles set in the same color. The main image was added to this layer and flowers added with crystal brads before adhering the whole she-bang to a Pumpkin Pie card base. Final step was to add a sentiment from the Sweet Serendipity set.

Night night everyone - I need to run and do another load of laundry!
