My first week at Paper Sundaes!

Happy Sunday everyone! Yesterday was just a beautiful day here in Pennsylvania and I spent a good portion of the day working in the yard. The next few days are calling for rain (again!) so I'm glad I got to fuss a bit while I could.

Our challenge this week at Paper Sundaes is to "pop up" your card. Our sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking and I will tell you I order from Michelle's frequently. Not only are her prices great but she is a wonderful person and her service is second to none. She is usually my first choice of places to get my stash from so I am pleased to have her as one of our sponsors. My card for this weeks challenge is a Tina Wenke stamp and I popped up some of the flowers and the leaves although it is difficult to see in this picture, but trust me I fussy cut those things out but they really do look lovely. I should have taken a picture from the side but since this card is in the mail that ain't gonna happen!

A little lace and some Viva Decor pearls in the corners and a bunch of stickles (I should own stock!) and I have to say I am really pleased with how this card came out. Ok everyone, time to get popping and show us your talent!
