A Little Hope, A Little Sparkle, and A Little Nacho's (Nacho's Challenge That Is) NAC #36

Pin It
Hey y'all. Happy Saturday! I hope you had a great week. Well, it's Saturday again and as usual that means I'm getting the Nacho Average Challenge card in just under the wire. I meant to get it in early this week but I had swaps to make, they'll be up later this coming week, and my mom's birthday card, did you see it, earlier this week? And I had my friend that's a realtor over to look at my house and we had a snow storm, and well you get the picture. LOL!

Well, the good news is I've got a card a card for this week's challenge that I'm so excited to show you, even though it's a color challenge, or maybe I should say especially since it's a color challenge. Many of you know those pose a particular challenge for me.  Here's this week's challenge card-

Card featuring Blooming with Kindness

Here's this week's challenge over at Nacho Average Challenge-

So it's actually a really pretty combination together. I had the whole card together and was really happy with how it looked but then I went back and let Tink have a moment. Not many people know this, but sadly, there hasn't been a lot of sparkle in my life lately. I don't know if you've noticed it in my cards or not, I just did, but even they haven't been sparkling much. :'(   I'm working on it and give me a month or so and hopefully it will be back where it should be. I'm really happy that I went back and added that extra touch-

You can see it a little here. It just glows in person. The flower is Certainly Celery and I tap-danced the Gumball Green marker over it, huffed on it and then stamped it, before cutting it out with my oval framelet and mounting it on dimensionals.

Here's the inside-

I kept it simple, but pretty. The flower is just the second stamping from the front and the sentiment is from the same set. Well, that's all I have for you today. I hope you like it and I hope those fabulous ladies over at NAC like it too. If you like it or have any questions I hope you'll take a moment to leave me a comment in the space below. I love hearing from you and read all of your comments. They really do make my day! If you'd like to +1 or Pin today's card I've put to buttons on my blog for your convenience. Friends and Followers are always welcome too!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to stop by my little corner of the world. You are very appreciated! Till Next Time-

Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storms to pass, but Learning to Dance in the rain.
