Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend.  As for me, it flew by much too fast like a blur.  With family visiting from Oahu, it was WONDERFUL!!! 

  Here's a stamp by Son Light Crafts U.S.A. which I bought at a clearance sale some time ago.  It's been hollering at me to ink it up.  I was procrastinating on this one because of all the little details to color but it was actually FUN!    

Other ingredients to whip up this card:
Spellbinder dies
Lace by Simplicity
DP by Doodlebug
"Norrland Flower" die by Memory Box from Island Scrapbooking
"DL102 French Pastry" doily die by Cheery Lynn Design
Circular gold embellie from my stash
Sentiment made on my computer
Word punch by Stampin' Up
Button from my stash
Ribbon by Offray

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room - "5/28 - 6/3 - Anything Goes"
The Corrosive Challenge - "Challenge 175 - "I've Been Framed"
Kaboodle Doodles - "Challenge 173 - Anything Goes"

What a pretty card. I love the layout of your card and the super detailed stamp that you used. I am glad that you had fun coloring it. It must have been very relaxing to color it.

I am glad that you had a nice long weekend visiting with family that were visiting from Oahu. What kinds of food did you eat? Did you cook?
