One of my greatest blessings...

Happy Sunday! Hope you have had a glorious day!
It has been beautiful here today...but I still was playing in my scrap room!

My card today was created with these 2 challenges in mind!

Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge July 2012 Week 3

I hope you can tell that the center panel is vellum that I stamped and heat embossed.
I saw this technique and wanted to try it. Apparently I had some static, so don't look too closely at the splotch in the middle!

The flowers were made by using the Carnation Creations Spellbinders Dies.
I have had these for awhile, but today was the first time that I played with them.
I'm definitely gonna use them again!
I selected the paper for the sentiment because of that little bee! Isn't he cute?!?

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper: Hello Sunshine! (Bo Bunny); Kraft; Vellum
Stamps: Absolutely Delightful (Simon Says)
