May Every Sunrise Hold More Promise

Hello Lovelies!

**I am thrilled to share that this card was chosen as Papercraft Stars Runner Up and given the Quasar Award as well as The City Crafter's Spotlight Artist**

I have a quick share for you today inspired by a few challenges that gave me the opportunity to play with some new goodies from Inspired By Stamping and Authentique.  Gray and yellow is a popular combination right now from papercrafting to Home decor, so I thought I would join in. :-)))
I started out with a Whisper White Card base and pieced together my pattern papers from Authentique.   Some crochet trim was added and a doily was hand-dyed and stamped with an image from  Inspired By Stamping - Paris  The doily was then embellished with a variety of buttons around the image which was inspired by Cheryl. :-)

A spellbinders Label 3 was die-cut and stamped with the complimentary Fancy Labels 3 adding an encouraging sentiment from Amazing Inspirations.   Three roses were added to the upper right corner for a finishing decorative touch!

I found inspiration from The City Crafter Challenge - Sketch
Papercraft Star - Gingham or Checks 
Moxie Fab - Gingham and Moxie Fab - Doilies and Lace
I hope you have a Fantastic Friday!
~Tammy~
