Make the Challenges Lovely

I'm so glad summer is here...but the challenges have not stopped.

I don't mean card challenges, either. Those are cool. ;)

No, I mean the challenges of each and every new day.

I LOVE that God gave me the desire to craft and keeps my busy mind occupied.

There are things I can't change, things I can't control...but I CAN try to make beautiful cards.

IN THAT SENSE...challenges motivate me to USE those challenges of life to create lovely wherever and whenever I can.

I'm sure many of you craft for the same's cheaper than therapy! Ha! ;)

For this pinkish card...

I started with Inspired By #117

and picked the different layers of patterns.

I used the colors from
