Happy Monday to all my blogging friends. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to tackle a new week!

Today, I am sharing a card with you that I am entering into Card Patterns Sketch 142 challenge. This card features the Inspired by Stamping All Year Wishes II stamp set and DCWV’s The Far East papers.


…..and here is the sketch:


The design on the left panel was accomplished by using a Sizzix Impressabilities embossing template, VersaColor ink, SU embossing powder and heat tool.


The lily is from a quilling technique and is made by cutting a teardrop shape, pinch at the bottom and roll back the top.  The “gratitude” panel is from K & Company’s Life’s Journey papers.


And here is the lovely sentiment from Inspired by Stamping All Year Wishes II on a Spellbinders Fancy Tag.

Complete instructions are listed below, so if you want all the details, please scroll down.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my card today and will leave comments before you leave! Thanks for stopping by….
