Hello!  :-)   This tired momma finally ran off to the stamp room today to make something.   I have been fighting off headaches and exhaustion for a while now, but today I decided to take some Excedrin and go stamp anyway.    I saw the fun challenge at AEIHeartU to use gold and gave it a shot.   I am not a big fan of gold, but I had fun with this card.  

Challenge 10

I used the Avery Elle Simply Said Hello stamp set with the coordinating die, plus I threw in a few stars from my favorite, Party Animal.   Fun stuff.  I paired the gold with navy, a sponged ombre strip, and a cute tag.   Can't forget the sequins either, so I threw in a few of those as well.  

 I cut out a few layers of the hello die and glued them all together to make it a bit more sturdy and give it dimension.  

 My assistant for card photography helped out.   She said it was a cute card, so it is officially Laila approved!


  1. Wonderful outfit Laila ...smiles, and the card is AWESOME!
