Time to Bloom

I have had a great week. With the start of new school year at a new school I was unsure of how things would go. I should have known that God would have it all in control and had placed me in a wonderful place. I am no longer getting lost as I go from my classroom to the office and I have enjoyed getting to know so many new people.

This morning I decided to drop in at some of my favorite blogs. (You can check them out on the toolbar to the right.) Of course I was challenged again by 2S4Y. Laura provided the sketch for this week.

While Shea and Fisher were off to the store and before the Sunday School picnic I had some time to relax and make a card.

As I was going through my scrap pile I found this fabulous green polka dot paper. I paired it with some green lace on brown card stock.

I used the Home Decor cartridge to cut out the filigree piece and backed it with a shadow. I also cut out the dragonfly from the same cart.

The circle chipboard piece was just the right size but the colors didn't match. That is when I spotted the metallic BLOOM sticker and it was just made to fit. I was then inspired to use soda can for the metal strip which I embossed with my cuttlebug. I used some flowers and a square jeweled brad to accent the bottom corner. I love the way the colors came together. Enjoy and thanks for looking!
