Blessed By You

I made this card about a week ago for the VLVJUL05 challenge on SCS. As I've said a million times I love the Verve sketches they have each Friday. They always have a twist to them, this one was a twist of texture. I used my Cuttlebug to dry emboss some panels of this card. The green floral panel is embossed, can't really tell by the photo, but it looks cool in person. I love the paper, too. It is one of the newer Basic Grey collections, Lime Rickey. Doesn't it just scream summer? Don't know if I like the paper or name more. Have you ever had a lime rickey? It's a really delicious lime soda. I love anything lemon or lime.

This card is going to an online friend who always wishes people "Blessings". When I saw the sentiment in this set, I immediately thought of her. So it will be in the mail in a day or two. Hope she'll enjoy it!

If all goes well, this will be posted while I'm at Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA. Haven't been there since I was a child. Hoping the boys will enjoy it as much as I did. Looks like they have lots of fun water attractions that they didn't have when I was little. The kids are excited to go. Hope we have some sunshine while we are there.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a good one!
