I Did It ! ! !

What - you might say???  Something I seriously have an aversion to - cutting out.  But thanks to this freebie image from Sassy Cheryl's and this week's Sassy Cheryl's challenge no 21 Cut It Out, I have another card for my stash!!  And another thing, I used backing paper that is 3 years old!!!  Sorry, but I do love using exclamation marks.  This is also being entered in this week's 2S4Y - Laura's Sketch No 57 - I have turned the sketch on its side for the challenge and my colours qualify this as an entry into A Pocket Full of Posies Challenge no 3 this week too.  Wow, one card, three challenges.  Yipee!!!

OK, so the card looks a bit bare.....  But I promise you, in my hand it sparkles when I turn it.  The backing paper is from a DCWV glitter stack and it also has tiny areas of clear embossing so I didn't want to hide it with too many embellishments.  Maybe when it comes to being used I might add some punched-out daisies.

Card Recipe:
  • Sassy Cheryl's freebie image - thank you Cheryl.  Check out the store here
  • Backing paper, as mentioned above, is at least 3 years in my craft stash and is by DCWV
  • White 'bubbles' created using a Cuttlebug embossing folder on white pearlescent card
