CPS127/PDCC93 - Celebrate Your Day!

Good Monday morning to you and thanks for popping in!  Today I have a card that I created using two challenges, I used the sketch from the Card Patterns Sketch Challenge #127 and the bright cheerful colors from The Playdate Cafe Challenge #93.  I had so much fun creating this card, maybe it was the colors I'm not sure but it was just one of those cards that came together easily. 

I used the PTI stamp set Signature Greetings for my sentiment, PTI flower dies with the Sending You stamp set and button centers, an SU sizzlet butterfly, some crazy stitching on the My Mind's Eye designer paper, circle Nesties and what I thought looked cool...herringbone embossing on the leaves that I die cut from the Sending You dies.
