Liebster Blog award and a card

Today I was so surprised to see that I had been awarded The Liebster blog award from Cyndie from artfulhaven.blogspot.com. This is an award given to blogs with less than 200 followers. It is such an honor to have fellow crafters checking out my blog. Thanks Cyndie! Cyndies cards are beautiful! Be sure to stop by her blog to see her creations. Okay now for todays card.


Today I am playing along with the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 153. Karen has some awesome sketches. I'm so glad I could play along this week. I used GKD lipstick red cardstock and SU patterned paper. I stamped the swirls (hero arts) randomly on the patterned paper with memento rhubarb stalk ink. I used two Martha Stewart punches behind the focal point.The sentiment is from the new Simply You stamp set from PTI. I traced over the sentiment with a sakura glitter pen but I don't think you see this in the picture. I used spellbinders pinking circles behind the sentiment. The ribbon is from Michaels and the flowers and bird embellishment are from my stash. I added dots of red stickles to the background for a little extra sparkle. I had Mother's Day in mind when I made this card. I am also playing along with the Moxie Fab worlds Tuesday Trigger challenge. Here is the inspiration photo:
I was inspired by the colors and the dots. Well that's it for tonight. Thanks for visiting!
