Follow Your Bliss

Hey there!

I have a fun little card to share and a bit clean from my usual style of late. I had a little fun with my oval punch and created this flower using some gingham papers in my stash! :-)))
I was further inspired by the sketch over at Mojo Monday.  I substituted the circle for the bloom I created  and added the hand-cut banner at the bottom with a sentiment from Inspired By Stamping Inspiring Sentiments.
The butterfly was punched and embossed and some bling added to the center!
The color inspiration comes from The Paper Players
And Papercraft Star: Gingham or Checks
Moxie Fab: Gingham Challenge

So there you have it, nothing fancy but a little fun with an encouraging sentiment! 

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
~Tammy~
