Life Is Good

Hello everyone!! Better make this fast, Jared should be awake any minute and I don't want him to catch me trying to do something. I swear he has a sensor...he only cries when I am on the computer or the phone..spoiled already I guess!! This is my card for today's sketch challenge over on SCS. I decided to use my new Eastern Blooms set because I think I love it...LOL!! My colors are two of the new in colors-Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango, and Chocolate Chip. I stamped the branch in TT first and then went over the branch with the journaling end of my Chocolate Chip marker. I pierced a border around the edge and then sponged with CC ink. The next panel is just a piece of white run through the Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots folder. The background paper is some Bella Rose DSP. I added a piece of white taffeta, Kiwi Kiss striped and chocolate grosgrain. The sentiment is from the retired She's All That set. I punched it out with my 1in circle punch and added the layers from there. I did a bunch more piercing and sponging, added some silver brads and it was done! Since I started this post 4 hours ago, you can imagine how my day is going.....gotta love kids!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
