The NEW Bohemian Dreams Collection will set your spirit free with inspiration messages of encouragement, loose hand drawn images and beautiful bright colors.
The focal point of my card is the"tribe" sentiment on the Tribe Vibes journaling card. I embellished it with floral die cuts from the Lazy Daisy pack.
A 4" Cambridge Doily is tucked under the journaling card to add a lacy accent, and Jump For Jade sequins add sparkle and shine. 
This collection is sure to set your soul free to create!

Sugar Pea Designs Mix It Up Challenge
You're Sweet!


Do you love Sugar Pea Designs? Then you need to join us for our monthly Mix It Up Challenge! It's a great way to spark your creativity, and who knows? You might just win a gift certificate to the store for playing along! Here's this month's challenge! 
You can choose from the inspiration photo, sketch, or color scheme to play along!
I immediately picked up on the colors (red, pink, grey and yellow), the love theme with the heart, and the circles on the sketch challenge.
I kept seeing the circles in the background of the photo, the round tires, the round sketch graphics and decided on donuts from the Classroom Cupids stamp set! I stamped them in red and pink and a golden yellow cake color. I stamped the X and 0 in grey and inked in solid hearts in pink and red.
I cut the XOXO tic tac toe with the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles. The sentiment is stamped on a Stitched Flag. I love the repeated stitching on the crisp die cuts. The paper is also from Sugar Pea Designs. Its from a 4.25 x 5.5" pad called Spots and Stripes Pastels. It's also available in a Brights pad.
Need more inspiration? You can find more samples from the team, and get all the directions on how to link up your own card here on the Sugar Pea Designs Blog! I can't wait to see what you make!

Have a great day!

Spring is Here (Almost!)

Winter is still going strong in my part of the world. I did see a flock of Robins in front of the house a few days ago.. that's a good sign that Spring is on it's way. They don't stick around here in the Midwest for the Winter so I know they're heading back from their Southern vacationing.

I love a sketch challenge and today I'm playing along with Sketch Saturday. Look at this clean design they have for us! 
I decided to use the sketch as a backdrop for some beautiful spring Crocus Flowers from Pretty Pink Posh.
I inked up a white panel with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Ink, stamped the sentiment with Versafine Ink and then cut the panel with the Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Borders die. I cut the border a second time with white card stock and stacked them If you look close you can see the double border.
The Crocus Flowers were inked with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers. Sparkly Lemon Drop Jewels make this card even sunnier.
I hope you have a bright beautiful day with lots of time to play. Maybe I'll see you over at Sketch Saturday too!

You Make Miso Happy!

Happy Monday! It's another snowy day here so I'm staying close to home and keeping warm! LOL! Today I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches. I'm cutting it close because the linky closes in just a few hours. 
Here's the sketch this time! 
I was inspired by the triangles on the sketch and started with the Reverse Confetti Triangle Background Cover Plate. 
In lieu of the actual triangles I added two cute pandas.. a larger one seated behind a smaller one.. like the triangles on the sketch.
To keep them from fading into the green background I added an All Framed Up stitched frame with a vellum backer. I added some green jewels for more color and some sparkle and shine. 
The leafy flourishes on the sketch are replaced by bamboo stalks.
Wishing you a happy day!
