Beautiful Day

Hello everyone, just trying to sneak a post before my little one wakes up from her nap.  For this card I used the colors in this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge.  For my colors I used Baja Breeze, So Saffron, and Night of Navy.  I started out with the Baja Breeze cardstock and adhered some patterned paper from Bo Bunny.  I used my ticket corner punch on the top corners.  My sentiment is from a stamp set from MFT stamps, which came with the coordinating die!  I first stamped the houndstooth frame from one set called Textile Rectangle Die & Stamp set and cut it out using the coordinating die.  I then stamped the sentiment and frame from another stamp set and die combo called,  Framed Greetings, which I popped up using pot dots.  I added some half backed pearls under the sentiment, and a butterfly from Jenni Bowlin.  The bow was made from some seam binding, which I added a vintage button to the center.  Well that does it for this card, not too much but hopefully enough to inspire a Beautiful Day!

Thanks for stopping by,
