Life...a wonderful journey

  I was perusing my Shop Pumpkin Spice purchases, my Echo Park collections in particular, and I realized that "This & That" has not been out to play in a while.  The reds in this collection are so pleasing to me.  I honestly had no direction while I was creating this card; I chose to let the stickers inspire me.

  The element stickers (sentiment tab, the oval with three children, and the aqua ruler)  jumped out at me.  I also liked the decorative white & aqua border sticker (bottom of card) from the alpha stickers.  Then it was just a matter of choosing the papers from the collection that I wanted to use.

  I also used Spellbinders Nestabilities "Labels 1" for the die cut shape.  At first I was going to use my sewing machine to stitch the floral paper to the polka dot background, but first the needle broke, then I tried to change the bobbin and now the machine is all locked up...so I opted for a little paper piercing.

I hope I have inspired you to use your sticker stash and to remind you to check out Shop Pumpkin Spice for your paper crafting needs :)

Happy Thursday!
