Today Makes Me Smile

I made this card this morning.   Looks like I was in a purple mood.    I even did some dry embossing on the background.   Seems I usually get a card all put together and then think, wow, I should have embossed something on it.    I'm going to enter this card in 3 challenges.

First off I used Sketch #52 at  "Sketch-N-Scrap"   I really liked the look of it.  I thought I might be using different patterned papers but as I started laying things out just with with one pattern and two shades of purple card stock.   The embossing just added enough to it to not need more pattern in my humble opinion.   :)  Check out all the June challenges and a chance at a great prize from We R Memory Keepers.

Next I will enter this card in the latest Wednesday challenge at "Simon Says"  this challenge is just for anything goes.    And with this card I actually used a  new sentiment stamp and it wasn't even a birthday sentiment.   Seems most of my cards lately have been birthday cards.    Check it out and have a chance to win a $50 voucher at Simon Says stamps.  Oh how I would love that.

Third in the yahoo scrapping group I belong to, we have a weekly card challenge with a theme/prompt and this week there it was also anything goes.  So I have that covered with this for my weekly card.

Here are the links to the challenges and also  the sketch.
