SSIC Cool Colours

This weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is brought to us by the lovely MariLynn who has chosen:
'He made the moon to mark the seasons', Psalm 104:19

MariLynn's challenge is With the change of seasons this week, make a card/project showing something related to the new season.

While spring is on it's way for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, here 'Down Under' things are changing and Autumn/Fall is on it's way - so I have used COOL colours, along with one of NinaB Designs New Licensed Dies for Spellbinders Paper Arts, called Sewing Elements, along with the Spellbinders Labels Four and Fancy Tags Three.  I love trying different Dies together, there are so many combinations - the possibilities are endless.

The Paper is My Mind's Eye™ - Lost and Found Collection and the gorgeous bling swirl is from Want2 Scrap.  The sentiment is from the retired Layers of Color Set Sentimental Banners

This card is for the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Chicks Rule
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Sentiment which represents a song (Happy Birthday)
Delightful ChallengesSomeone Special (my daughter)
Moving Along With The TimesSpecial Lady (my daughter)
Paper Crafting Journey - Pretty Pastels
 Shelly's Images - Anything Goes
Stamp Man - Vintage
