Under the wire!

Yes, that says "Under the wire!," NOT under wire.  Just making sure you know I'm not getting fresh! ;)  Anyway, I am totally under the wire which is the reason for this crazy late/early post from me!  Insomnia is my friend this week and so I've had lots of time to make cards and I finished a couple tonight.  One right under wire.  I mean under THE wire. ;)

Here it is~

Details~


For these fabulous challenges~








I've used patterned papers by Recollections (polka dots) and Papertrey Ink (floral/polka dot), a sentiment by Inspired By Stamping, cherry embellies by Jolee's, twine from my stash, a glitter gel pen by Sakura, liquid pearls by Ranger, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  The bow was the hardest part--trying to get that twine to stay where I wanted it and turn into a bow was a pain in my under wire! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I had TONS of fun making it--this isn't my best style and so practice will eventually make perfect I hope!  Please join the fun with these amazing challenges friends!  HUGS and happy stamping!

This is such a sweet and colorful version of a sentiment only card. I've come to like this kind of card more and more, and this one gives me great inspiration!

Sorry to hear about the insomnia though...bummer that.
