Warm Wishes

It's been awhile where I created a project specially for a challenge. But, I found 2 inspirations pics that I simply couldn't resist. One from Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger and one from Wplus9 Mood Board.

And from these 2 inspirations, I made this card:

I am so happy with the way this card turned out. Loving the pastel effect on this card. I stamped the flowers with versamark ink, then rubbed pastel over the flowers and fussy cut them. I added the strings for extra details, inspired by Jenni Pauli's style. She often added strings on her projects and I decided to give it a try. And, I am hooked! I think it gives the card a fun texture. You can definitely see more string on my projects from now on. :) Am also entering this card for Simon Says Stamps spring flower challenge.

And, how about ending today's post with a cute pic? I have to share my  niece picture here. My SIL sent me this pic of my niece and I feel my heart melt. The sparkle on her eyes gets me every time. And, I love the fact that my niece has such strong connection with her grandma. My brother said that every time she heard my mom's voice she smiles. If she's about to fall asleep, she will open her eyes a bit to give her a smile. Love that!

I sure can't wait to meet this cutie patootie and get to kiss her sweet cheeks. In a few more months. I am planning to be home for her 1st birthday. :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
