I have had one of the most fustrating weekends ever!!! My cell phone has been acting up for about a month...losing power quickly and not powering back up when charged....and now I can't power it on at all!!! I have so much info on there I feel out of sorts without it! I just want to throw the darn thing out the window!

Anyhow,

For my card I used Backgrounds and Borders Stamp Set from W Plus 9 and the sentiment stamp is Embroidered Blooms from Papertrey Ink.


Cardstock is from PTI. Inks are cantaloupe soft and soft lilac, black ink from Hero Arts. Color Box ink in moss green. Sequins are Neat & Tangled Stamps.
