You Make ME Smile

I'm playing along with Becky's Compose a Card challenge #8. I loved her daughters Easter dresses. I think I would like one in my size.

The basic design of the card happened by accident for me. I was working on another card for the Peeps challenge using dot spot and put my dot spot on the acrylic block backwards which created a circle that looked a little distressed. So that was the beginning of this design.

I then stamped the right side of dot spot using a smaller size than the background dot. I embossed with Zing Chestnut to get the finished look.

A sentiment using Signature Greeting, spring moss ribbon and a New Leaf button finished this beautifully.

If you saw my last post you know that I had 88 bags of pine bark mulch delivered on Saturday. We are half way done. My body was so tired last night that I just SAT! I took a couple of pictures this morning. Nothing like new mulch to make a flower bed look wonderful.

Have a great Monday everyone! ~ Rhonda
