You're perfect.

Even if this card isn't.

It's time for another challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations! Come on over and join us. :)

This week our challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.

Bugaboo is offering our randomly drawn winner THREE digis! 

Wow! Thank you so much, Bugaboo

This week our challenge to you is STORY TIME!! 
I used the Simon Says Stamp 'To Thine Own Shelf'. I love this set because, as you know, I love rainbows and it's very conducive to that! I also like to create scenes but don't really know how to, so this set makes that an easy accomplishment.

I stamped my shelves and sentiments in Versafine Black Onyx ink and all the other colors came from a set of Dew Drops by Memento. The longer of the shelves got smeared, which I haven't done in forever. It also stamp crooked when I went back over the original stamping because I wanted it darker. Jennifer McGuire makes it look so easy.

Overall, I'm happy with it. It's just my style!

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
