You Make Me Smile

 
 
Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!  I hope that you had a wonderful weekend.  I have another creation to share with you for this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge - Everything Old Is New Again.  There are only a few days left to play along.  I hope that you can join us.  For all of the details and a place to link your creation, just visit Alma's Blog
 
 
This time around, I went with using something old in a new way.  See my blossom down there on the corner of my card.  It's not made with a die that one would typically make a flower with, but I was up for the challenge and I wanted to try something new.  I took my TCP Icing CutUps die and a piece of wool felt and I ran them through my Cuttlebug.  Then I simply rolled my woolen die cut piece with a pair of tweezers to form a blossom and I held it all together with a sticky dot.  I added a few pearls to the center to dress it up, and there you go...you have yourself something new, made with something old.  For those polka dotted leaves, I used the egg shape from the TCP Eggs in a Basket CutUps die. 
 
All of the patterned papers are from the Family Ties collection from Pebbles.  The sentiment is from the TCP Bloom set.  I just loved last week's Mojo Monday Sketch and I didn't have a chance to play along, so I decided to give it a try for today's creation.  Some zigzag stitching completes my card. 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit with me today.  Enjoy your day!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
