Hello Sunshine!

Hello friends!
Today I'm sharing a card that brought me back to my childhood. Ya know when you do something or pass by something and it reminds you of a flashback of when you were a child? Creating this card did that for me. I used the Sweet Stop Sketch 150 for my card today.

Papers: Bazzil, Lawn Fawn
Stamps: Hope by Sugar Nelly & sentiment by Papertrey Ink (Handwritten Notes)
Pearls: Recollections
Twine: The Twinery
Ribbon:Ribbon Carousel

I had a lot of fun putting this card together. The ribbon I used was a white lace ribbon from Ribbon Carousel and I used some baker's twine from Twinery. I inked up all my edges using some antique linen distress ink and I used a Martha Stewert punch along the sides of my card and on one of my layers.The sentiment was stamped with momento tuxedo black ink and was framed using spellbinder's fancy tags. The main image is up on dimensionals as is the main layer. I did my coloring with copics E000, E00, YR01, E35, V12, V15 and RV17.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge 150
RCC45 Ribbon Carousel Challenge:Baking with the Twinery

I hope you all enjoyed my card today and thanks for stopping by!
