Wishing You A Most Lovely Day - Sketchy Cardspiration #2

Happy Friday everyone! 
I hope you all had a great week and found some time to get crafty.

I want to thank everyone for your lovely comments you all left on my blog over the past week. I read every single one and tried to respond to the ones I was able to. Your kind words mean so much to me! 💗


I have a new Sketchy Cardspiration for you today! 
I'll share my card inspired by my sketch first and add the sketch at the bottom.

I had lots of fun with this one and used as many matching papers as I could to make the sunburst pattern and then went further and stitched each one together!

After I got done stitching everything together, it kinda looked like a cool quilt! I will always love the look of stitching on paper...adds lots of awesome texture too!

The stamp I used is Magnolia Stamps "Tilda With Heart Balloons". I'm sure she is a retired stamp because I have not been able to link to her. I was lucky enough to purchase this stamp second hand, from a fellow crafter years ago, that was clearing out some of her older stamps. But if you're looking for a great place to buy Magnolia Stamps in the US, I've always bought mine from Magnolia-Licious.

The sentiment is my own design available in my digi sentiment shop HERE. The little crocheted hearts I got years ago from a fellow Etsy crafter. She custom made a bunch of different colored crocheted hearts for me. Her shop is called "Craft Me Crazy" and can be found HERE.

Some more close-ups...
