My new favoritest color is Pool Party. I almost dig it out every time I want to create but have to stop myself....and look at the color challenge for today:

And my new favoritest stamp is the Hello, Doily stamp:

Now you know why.....doesn't it look like I took one of my mom's homemade doilies and glued it to my card? I even stamped and embossed two of them and cut the center of the 2nd one with my 1 3/4" Circle Punch and plopped it on my card with Stampin' Dimensionals and a Rhinestone Brad. Oops, I forgot to mention the color challenge for today is at Create with Connie & Mary!

I used the 3/4" Circle Punch on each side of my card and cut half a circle. I used the half circles to tie my ribbon:

If you look closely, you'll also notice that I used my Pool Party Stampin' Write Marker to trace around the outside edges of the Hello, Doily Stamp. Just a little trick to help the image stand out:

Okay, your turn, hop on over to Create with Connie & Mary to upload your challenge card. I hope to see you there!
