Cardalicious 2

Happy Monday everyone!  Has it turned chilly for you all these last few days?  We have definitely had a change in weather here.  It’s really starting to feel like fall.  In fact, it was downright cold this morning at 6 am when I had to get Pete up for school.  Cold and dark.  I finally had to break down and turn on the heat, even.  Nik and I had to wear heavy sweaters, scarves and mittens for our late afternoon walk yesterday.  I’m already missing the warm weather.  I do love fall, but I love the Indian Summer part of fall, not the cold part.  Brrrrr…..

But along with the cold, Monday brings a new challenge at the Cardalicious blog.  Now that, I can deal with!  This week’s challenge is to create a birthday card using at least two journaling tags/spots/cards on your design.  Often, when you think of journaling tags, you think of scrapbook pages.  But journaling pieces also add a fun embellishment to cards.  Here is what I did.

Most of the supplies on my card came from  Webster’s Pages, including their large journaling prompt cards. Trimmed down just slightly, the journaling card became the perfect fit for the second layer on my project.  I love that these cards come with prompts to kick start your journaling.  The “on this day” prompt worked perfectly with my birthday wishes sentiment.  I also included a journaling tag from K&Co. for the second journaling piece and a hand-made ticket cut from some Bee Balm patterned paper from the Reflections of Nature line.  The butterfly was trimmed from another journaling card.  And look at the gorgeous new Webster’s trim!!  I just could not love it any more than I do. If you all haven’t seen all their new trims, just scroll down a few of my posts to see the entire collection.  You will be adding them to your must-have lists for sure!

Do go check out the new Cardalicious blog if you haven’t already.  There is tons of inspiration there.  The entire design team really rocked this challenge.  Link me up in the comments if you play along!

Have a great day!
