Pickle Post #35 - Thankful for You!

Hi there and happy Tuesday...well it may be Wednesday before you get this. :)

I was so darn busy last week that I got a little behind. I wasn't feeling great over the weekend, but I am getting back on track and feeling better so I have to get my posts up!

Thank you all for your support in light of my lengthy absence and my re-entry into the blogging world of crafty goodness! :) There are so many of you out there I truly consider my friends even though we haven't met in real life. I am so grateful for your creative inspiration and your sweet comments that give me a much needed boost!

In support of the AMuse Studio Challenge Blog, I created a card for this week's challenge. If you haven't joined us in a challenge, please do so! We would love to see what you create and give away some fun AMuse goodies - hopefully to YOU.

Here is the inspiration for this week's challenge:

Lovely colors, layers, florals, scallops...so much inspiration to choose from. :)

Here is what I created for the challenge:
I wanted my card to be simple to bring focus to the AMuse shimmer cardstock I used - I LOVE IT.  It is one of my favorite 'go to's' at the moment! I tried so many angles to photograph the sheen of it but it is so much prettier in person! I love blues and browns together so I worked with those colors. I am drawn to the stitching, scallops and florals in the picture. That inspired the rest of the card. The polka dotted flowers are another favorite of mine. They just make me happy. :)

Stuff I Used (All AMuse Studio Products):
Stamps - 'Life is a Song'
Cardstock - Sugar & French Roast Shimmer, Bermuda Polka Dot
Ink - French Roast
Dies - Flowers 2, Scallop Borders, Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangles
Other Stuff - Bermuda Buttons, French Roast Stitched Ribbon, Clear Embossing Powder

AND I still have a fun surprise in store...I have to get that post put together to share with you.
I am eternally behind LOL! :) Stay tuned...

Thanks for stopping by today!
