You Are My Sunshine (Heart 2 Heart Challenge #1)... and a Sneaky Peek


For all of you who love challenge blogs, there's a brand new one that just started up today.  It's called Heart 2 Heart Challenges, and you can see the guidelines to Challenge #1 HERE.  I'm so excited for this blog, as it is a CTMH challenge blog.  YAY!

So this is my card I made for the first challenge.  I just got my new shipment of Summer Idea Books in with all 4 of the Summer Stamps of the Month -- another YAY! - so once I saw the colours we would be using, I instantly thought of this August SOTM set called Something Special.

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Sketch Template:  Wishes - Sun Dial
Paper:  White Daisy CS; Magic Moments B&T, Topstitch B&T
Stamps:  Something Special, Treasures
Inks:  Sweet Leaf, Chocolate, Sunflower, Honey, Versamark
Embellishments:  Chocolate Brads, Sunflower Organdy
Other:  Clear Embossing Powder
Punch:  Picket Fence edge (Martha Stewart)
Tools:  Craft Heater, Paper Piercer
Adhesive:  3D foam tape (Dollar Store), Tombo Mono Multi (LSS)
