Choose Love

Good Morning! Great Sunday morning to you all! 
Yesterday I ended being an outside girl and helping friends move livestock panels. Didn't get to ride but it was nice to be by the horses. When Mr. Tucker and I are were done with that we team worked the yard work that needed to be done! I did the weed whacking, he mowed! We make a great team! It is suppose to be warmer today so we are more than likely going to the pool!

I have to be honest. I made this card last week one day trying to mix some of the NEW stuff coming out on TUESDAY (that's right I said Tuesday) with stuff that is carrying over. I bought Choose Happiness during our Sale-A-Bration this year and man was I scared when I saw the retired list! But I was lucky! It has carried over!!

When I started this card I just started pulling ink pads to see what looked nice together! What you all may not know is that I used to work in a paint and wall-covering store WAY before kids and Mr. Tucker. So I really do have an eye for color. I chose Sahara Sand Card Stock as my base of this card. The next layer is Lost Lagoon card stock. I then took Whisper White card stock and stamped it in Sahara Sand ink with the Hardwood stamp. You will notice I also used the leaves on the bottom right corner from Choose Happiness, they are stamped in Lost Lagoon. I am a lover of the new In-Colors!! I used the Delightful Dijon to stamp the Choose Happiness flower. Then I busted out the Paper Snips and fussy cut it! I did rub the edges a little with the Sahara Sand just to give it a more aged look! I set this aside. The sentiment is from the new set Friendly Wishes, this was stamped in Lost Lagoon on about an 1.25" strip, then I used the Triple Banner Punch for the left end and also rubbed its edges with Sahara Sand and finished it off with three pearls. I attached it on the right with my tape runner and then fastened the Delightful Dijon flower over the edge of it with Stampin' Dimensionals. I ended up putting random sized pearls too! I am really getting into the layers. So I wrapped the Delightful Dijon Dotted Lace trim around the left side and layered it with the retired Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon and tied a cute little bow!

I absolutely adore this card and I hope you do too!!!
Have a great Sunday!
