It's Time To Celebrate

Hello and happy Sunday friend!  I just realized I have mere minutes to enter this card into ColourQ's latest challenge!  So, here is what I came up with.  Using CAS-ual Fridays sketch challenge, which they teamed up with Clean & Simple this week, I made this little number while crafting the day away with my girl pals at our local Archiver's!  What a blast we had.


Borrowing Kirsty's Medallion stamp set I stamped them onto Aqua Mist card stock and adhered a scalloped border strip in raspberry fizz and popped it up on a white card base.


Die cut a leaf branch and added my favorite thing, Buttons threaded with white thread!


Lastly, I stamped my sentiment using a Hero Arts set.


Here is the inspirational pic:


And the sketch:


Thanks for popping by!  Have a great day!

Lindsay

Supply list to come...
