Wishing You the Best for SCS & CR84FN Challenges

Good day, everyone!
It's Tuesday and I'm hoping you are having a great day by the time you are sitting down to read this post.

I am making a ton of cards for my nephew to sell at his school's Relay for Life event in May.  In doing so, I've come across a box of Autumn DCWV cards and envelopes.  When I first started making cards last July, I think I bought a ton of stuff at Michael's.  Now looking back, it was very silly.......so, I'm hopefully going to be able to use these card bases to make several cards for his fundraiser.

PTI's new Tag-Its were perfect for the focal image in Mat Stack #6!

You can click to enlarge this, but I just wanted you to have a close up of the Tag-Its #1 & #2.

I'm lovin' the new DCWV Mat Stack books.  I think I bought 5 of them at AC Moore this past week because they are such pretty summer papers!  One of them is used here as the background panel.

This card was inspired by SCS #326 Sketch Challenge and CR84FN's #22 Color Challenge.  You should definitely check both of these sites out for some inspiration.  I love both of their challenges and use them very often!
