Remember When?

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Tuesday, December 30, 2008
I was stamping up some images of my new Stamping Bella stamps today for a swap in my Addicted 2 Bellas group over at CafeMom and I thought, while I'm here, why don't a make a card with these?
So, I started making the card. I first chose a red card base, because wagons are usually red.. but then I found this flowered patterned paper and thought that looked good with the flowers on her wagon. I then picked out cardstock to match the flowers. I had just used this ribbon to make a bookmark (which I'll post a photo after the stickles dry) so it was calling to me on my craft table. I loved the flower theme that I had going on, so I grabbed even more flowers and added them as well! But then, I thought that something was missing in the corner, so I added a sentiment. As I sat at my table, admiring my card, I remembered the challenge at CafeMom in the Card Makin' Mamas group. We were to make a card that reminds us of our childhood. Well, what little girl doesn't love her wagon and all her toys? I know that's something that I'll always remember! And I hope that my daughter does as well.

I like the way the whole card turned out, and as always, I love my new Stamping Bella stamps! I hope that you enjoy my card, too!

I always get asked, so I'll tell you first - I used Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils to color my image.
