It's not often that I actually follow through on my little creative day dreams - sometimes it's just plain hard to find the time.
But when this sketch came across my e-mail from 2 Sketches 4 You and I saw all of the great cards the design team came up with (and the yummy rub-ons they used and you could possibly WIN if your design is chosen for the Card of the Week), I had to try it out!

The products are from a wide array of scraps so I have no idea where any of the paper actually originated from. The stamp is from my all-time favorite Life's a Jungle stamp set from Close To My Heart, as is the ink, bling and the sparkly brad (new in the fall catalog!) I embossed the saying with the sparkly glitter/clear embossing powder combo from Stamp;in' Up (I can't remember what exactly it's called, but I'll update you later.)
