Have I mentioned that I love challenges ?  
Well, I do !!!
Here a card that I made for one that I am entering at Nicole's Canadian Nickel Scrap'n Blog and the theme was anything summer! I think most of you know I'm a California girl, so this is my little take on my home state! I wanted to come up with something that looked like a vintage postcard. I went a little crazy on the Stickles, so maybe it's more Vegas like ?... but hey... who doesn't like Stickles ! I am also entering it in Mary's Cricut Cardz Challenge # 29
Details :
Base Card Whisper White from Stampin Up 5.5 x 4.25
Pattern Paper? with Natural Cardstock from Michael's
Scallop Punch from Stampin Up
All cuts from Life's A Beach Cart at appr 3 inches and customized with my Gyspy
Face Stamp on Sun from Peachy Keen Everyday Faces
Lots of Diamond Stickles

  12. Hi Alex!

    What a cute card! LOL... I don't think it looks like Vegas at all. I love stickels and I don't think you can ever have enough... :)
