I like to call it...


Pocketfull of Sunshine...I am entering this card for the Pink Elephant and the Cupcake Challenge...

I did a little addition to the card...can you tell what it is? "Which of these cards are different from the others?"-Tune from Sesame Street








The Pink Elephant Challenge this week is a recipe: Use Ribbon and die/diez cut.

Then at the Cupcake Challenge Jilly posted a gorgeous picture of flowers (found below-my fave fyi) for an inspiration.

Hope you all enjoy it! It was fun making...



Tools: Big Shot, Daisy flower sizzix die (that THE Lori Boyd gave me) and the Scallop Envelope Big Shot die, SU! Texture folders (the first set in the new catalog), I used the big dots (envelope) and one that has flowers all over it (base white)



Colors: I think the yellow is SU!'s Summer Sun...I am not positive because I pulled all these pieces out of my scrap box! I just love doing that! In fact, I think that would be a good challenge, just make something out of your scrap box...anyway...


I love this picture!

Great card, Bekki!! I love the flowers in the envelope. Very creative. It looks like you added a little leaf to your own card. And...now I am singing that song from Sesame Street! My kids think I am insane...but they always do! lol
Thanks so much for joining us again at TPE this week.
