The best way to know life is to love many things...

I've been following the 2 Sketches 4 You blog almost as long as I've been blogging myself. Though I don't often get a chance to participate in the challenges, I am always inspired by the fab artwork Laura & Kazan's team put together each week... not to mention drool over the weekly prizes.

Speaking of prizes, I like trying my hand at winning on several of my favorite manufacturer's blogs, including American Crafts Studio blog (hello, Thickers!). The weekly prizes over there are always amazing!

Since I finally was able to find my April Magpie kit, which had a bunch of American Crafts papers and their new Dear Lizzie stickers, plus some fun die cut paper that worked great for the 2S4U sketch, I worked my mojo to create this springy card:

I love that I was able to create such a pretty card with stickers! It's nice to not have to lug all my stamping gear out for one teeny, tiny card, ya know?
Anyhow, this card was created with American Crafts cardstock, glittered paper, and their latest line of Dear Lizzie Remarks Accent Stickers and Dear Lizzie Remarks Phrase Stickers.
In addition to the American Crafts items, I also used some Kaiser Craft & K&Co. pearl bling, Stampin' Up grosgrain ribbon & pop dots, Little Yellow Bicycle die cut & patterned paper and Powder Puffs chalk ink, plus a little ribbon slide from my stash.
