Live for Today!

Have you ever used Core'dination cardstock? I had not! Caardvarks has teamed with the Core'dination team with a challenge to create a monochromatic card.You don't have to use the sandable card stock but I had been dying to try some.

I used a Spellbinder Impressibility - Flowers and a Papertrey impression plate - Picnic Plaid to create the gorgeous light blue background paper. Sanding was easy and the results, stunning. As I wanted to see this pretty paper, I choose to keep the rest of the card simple.

Papertrey Enchanted Evening card stock, ribbon, and buttons completed this classy card.

I love the way the Picnic Plaid Impressions plate created a diamond through the flowers.

I appreciate each of you taking time to visit my blog. Your encouraging comments make my day!! ~Rhonda
