Sunday afternoon, 1 card, 2 challenges

Hello everyone! Hope your Sunday is going well. Thoughts and prayers still with those on the East Coast. I can't even imagine what that must be like, but I do know that I pray for everyone's safety. So, as I hide in the house avoiding the heat, what better way to spend an afternoon but playing in my room! I made this card for the the Terrific Tuesday Challenge at Scrappy Moms Stamps using Straight from the Nest Cricut cartridge, and Challenge #24 at Birthday Sundaes using an inspiration photo. The best part of this card is that the entire thing was made with scraps!!! woo hoo!! Even the kraft card base was a scrap! The sentiment stamp is from one of Scrappy Moms stamp sets, the twine was from some that I just received from Kimberly at My Craft Spot, the jewels were in my stash, and I used a Stampin Up border punch. And don't forget the Stickles!! Well, time to get dinner started. Hope the rest of your Sunday goes well and that you have a great week. Thanks for stopping by!
