I'm knee deep in my garage getting ready for a sale next Saturday called Treasures in the Trunk. It won't be at my house, so I'll have to haul all my "junk" to the church parking lot to sell! Hopefully, all will go well, and I can have a little cash in my pocket! The process of pricing everything is daunting, and I'm finding myself a little sentimental with some of our daughter's things. However, they are just things (at least I have to keep reminding myself of this!).
Stamps: Dress Form and sentiment by Sugar Creek Hollow
Paper: Stella and Rose by My Mind's Eye; Basic Black and Kraft by Stampin' Up

I was able to use one of my new sets from Woodware USA today, and it is called Fancy Cakes. Weddings are on the brain in my family as my niece prepares for her wedding in September. This is a beautiful set, and I was also able to dust off the embossing powders and use them on my card. Now, there is a technique that I haven't been using lately!
Thanks for stopping by today! If you would like to join the challenge, you can find details and upload your card HERE.

I have used Liza Bunny from Sugar Creek Hollow and colored her with Copic markers (C1 and C3 to be exact), and I have highlighted her by using the Nestabilities Labels 16. The card stock is Melon Mambo and white, and the designer paper for both her dress and the background of the card is Euphoria by Basic Grey (one of my all time faves for Basic Grey). The flowers are from Micheals, and the bow is SU ribbon tied with my handy-dandy Bow Easy. If you don't have one, buy one! They are my go to tool! And, once you get the hang of using one, it's all good!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a joyous weekend. I'm just hoping no wind or hail this weekend...not sure how much more our poor little house can withstand! Enjoy!

Now, on to the "OOPS" section! Remember the old adage, "do as I say, not as I do"? Well, that would apply today! My brain doesn't seem to be working, and I didn't follow the challenge guidelines. Our challenge this week is to use soft pastel colors. Well, mine don't exactly look soft or pastel. I'm so sorry! Please, do as I say, not as I do!

I printed the Dogwood three times, colored it, and cut it out. Then, I layered it around the sentiment image, which is placed on a Nestability cut out. The finishing embellishments are Stampin Up satin ribbon and Basic Grey pearls. The paper is from Once Upon a Springtime by Graphic 45, and the cardstock is Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette from Stampin' Up.
