Anxious to Play!

I hope everyone's weekend is going well!

I've been super excited to play with the Lawn Fawn new release...
have you seen it?!?  It's AMAZING!
I highly recommend going to the online store
as Vanessa is having a super sale (not on Lawn Fawn new release) 
and her shipping is super quick!!  I received shipping all the way to Hawaii in 3 days!
Don't forget to check out her blog too as they are having a fun challenge
using this mood board...

How could I not play with those gorgeous colors?!?
Here's what I came up with...

Lawn Fawn Dream with dies, Lawm Fawn Sally's ABCs, Hero Arts Shadow inks in Butter Bar, Pale Tomato, Orange Soda, Pool and India Ink Black
Scripty Joy die, Studio Calico Pattern Paper, DCWV Glitter Paper, Vellum

I'm in love with all of the Lawn Fawn scripty dies 
and I wasn't ready to make a Christmas card yet, so I decided to 
make a card for a patient that needs a little encouragment.
I die cut "joy" from glitter paper and again in black to create a shadow efffect.
Then, just swiped some ink over on the side of the pattern paper that had the lightest design,
heat embossed the feathers on vellum and adhered.
The word "choose" was a custom sentiment from Sally's ABCs
Here's a closer look...

The design was inspired by the latest 

And that's a wrap!  
Mahalo for stopping by and I hope you can get your shopping on!!
