365 Cards - #193 - Card Recipe & Paper Blooms - B.L.I.N.G.

Today over at 365 Cards the challenge was a card recipe and our card had to be a 5x5 card with 4 x designer papers, 3 x blossoms, 5 rhinestones, 1 x stamp or digi image and 1 x sentiment of our choice. I completed the challenge but then realised that I had used a different paper for the side panel down the right side of my card. I was talking to my daughter at the time of making this card and she had just gotten her first job. Yes I know she is nearly 21 yrs old but she has mental health issues which have always held her back. Bipolar disorder and an anxiety disorder can be quite challenging to deal with when you are young. But she managed to turn herself around and get this job and she is moving out with her partner in the next two weeks so I am so so proud of her for these big achievements. I am going to miss my little grandaughter but I will get to babysit her when Ash goes to work yay!!!!. Okay so I digress a bit. . . anyway I was talking to Ash and I picked up another designer paper from the DCWV paper stack and did not even realise that it was different until I had completed my card lol, so I am living on the edge with Gloria and Rose today for this challenge lol. This card also fits the Paper Blooms challenge this fortnight which is all about having B.L.I.N.G. on our card and my card certainly has that.

So here is my card for today. I hope you enjoy it.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

If you did not mention the other pp no one would notice {lol}! This is beautiful and I have that exact same paper so it's easy for me to "steal" this one. Congrats to your DD and I wish her all the best.
