Paradise

If the sketch looks familiar, it's the same one I used for my Mojo Monday card. First, I liked it. Secondly, I'm too pooped tonight to come up with something different.

There's nothing much to say about my card that you can't see for yourself. I used a craft knife to cut around the flower petals, enabling me to slip a couple of leaves under them. I like the dimension they add. Additionally, the focal point image was adhered to the card with foam mounting tape. Love the bright, pretty colors. Looks a bit like paradise.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Indian Corn Blue, and Desert Sand cardstock; Moon Doggie paper packet; Cranberry, Honey, Garden Green, and Indian Corn ink pads; Paradise stamp set; Cranberry gingham ribbon; Cranberry mini brads; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set; 3M foam mounting tape.

That good night's sleep I was talking about last night evaded me. I slept for about an hour and then woke up and laid there for a couple of hours trying to will myself to go back to sleep. I turned the TV on and watched a not-so-funny comedian on Comedy Central, a political pundit I dislike on one of the news channels, and finally, an infomercial about some miracle cosmetics that make wrinkles go away. I don't know if it's fortunate or unfortunate that I fell asleep during the latter. LOL. Thankfully, with little sleep, I did OK at work today. I am so busy, which makes the day go by fast. Just wish I could see some light at the end of the tunnel. Instead, I look toward the weekend for a little relief. That's about it for me tonight. I hope yours was a good day, too. Catch you again tomorrow!

This is so pretty. I love that stamp set and you've certainly done it justice.

I hope that you can get a good night's rest tonight.

So sorry you are sleep deprived Kathi! here's hoping you get some ZZZ's tonight.
I LOVE your card. That Hibiscus image has to be one of my favs at the moment. You see it everywhere. So why don't I have it ??? LOL

Hi Kathi! I agree that the leaves add dimension tucked under the petals of that beautiful flower! This set and paper is so yummy.

I hope you can rest tonight! I have been so blessed with being able to fall asleep anytime, anywhere. I used to hate it, but now I'm beginning to realize it's a gift. I'll say a prayer for you. {{hugs}}

Beautiful card. I have the paper and stamp set and haven't done much with it. Thanks for the idea.

Go-jus! Love the added detail of cutting the petals and inserting the leaves. You do inspire me so!

I hope you were able to get some good rest!

Happy Thursday!

Your card makes me want to get my cabana boy to bring me a drink.

A great summer card.
