All the travel arrangements are set...

I just need to start packing. So I took a break and made a card. This is for Challenge SCTL7 http://stampinglinkstolove.blogspot.com/.

This week is just add leaves. You need to have at least 5 leaves on your card.
Here is my entry. Since things have been so sad around here lately I wanted to remind myself to smile
SCTL7
SCTL7
The paper leaves are from Prima and the brad leaves are from my stash. The paper is from Basic Grey and Bazzill and yes it is the same paper as on the last card. The smile is a sticker - I dont remember the vendor but I got it at Target. The stamp is from Northwoods - (background on the paper) I used Ranger esspresso ink with vintage photo distress embossing powder. Everything is inked in ColorBox ink from a Que. The bling is from Kaiser.

It may not be my best card but it made me smile!

edit: To answer a question: the paper is Desire and Pearl from the Scarlet Letter Collection from Basic Grey --- this is the 8x8 paper version which I like better for card making --- I know now I buy paper in two different sizes not only 2 different patterns --- makes my hubby want to cry (well not really - I made the crying part up! hehehe)
