HUGS and prayers

Hello to you!

**Excited to share that this entry had two wins it was a Super Nova Winner at Papercraft Star and Top Mouse at Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge Thank you!**

We are still wet as ever! I guess that is good for our spring gardens, but I run on solar power, so I am missing Mr. Sunshine, and so does my camera! Ahhh.....

I started by piecing together my patterned papers and adhered it to my card base. A length of aqua ric rac ribbon was applied where the two patterns meet. At the top of the card face, I applied some beautiful off-white crochet trim.

A Spellbinders Labels 1 die was cut and and created into a tag using stamps from Waltzingmouse Vintage Labels 1 and sentiment from Say it Loud. I embellished the top of the tag with some pearls I had on my desk from another recent make adding a punched butterfly to the lower left of the tag adding a pearl to the center.  For a finishing touch, two crochet mats were applied near the lower right of the tag embellishing with some vintage buttons I recently won at Zeus and Zoe.

I found my inspiration at these wonderful places:
WMSC95
Papercraft Star - Polka Dots
Berry71Bleu - Inspiration Photo I was inspired by more of the peachy/coral tones in the upper right photo.
Thanks for stopping by!
