Loves Rubberstamps "Sensational Sunday Inspirations" using SC Ice Cream and Pickles

Hello!  How is everyone doing this weekend? It has been one busy weekend for me with back to back sports and family events both days.  I was so happy Friday came but then I blinked my eyes and it is now Sunday! What happened?!!! LOL  The weather has also been strange here in California with some days last week which felt like summer and today, chilly and gloomy! Very weird!  And we are all up bright and early again. My son, Ryan, had to alter serve and be at church at 7:00 AM.  Way too early with no coffee! LOL  This afternoon we are off to my new Sister in Law's baby shower.  She is due in April and the family is thrilled!  It was perfect timing for me to share this card for my 
"Sensational Sunday Inspiration" over at Loves Rubberstamps!

Here's my card...

I was so happy to be able to use this darling Saturated Canary image called Ice Cream and Pickles.  Isn't this image so cute and perfect for the "Preggy" stage, right?!!!  I know some of you know what I mean! :)   I colored this image up with my copic sketch markers.  Since today is St. Patty's day, I'm thinking maybe I should have used some green.  Hopefully teal will suffice! LOL The paper collection I used is by Simple Stories called Fabulous!  Beautiful papers.  There is a doily design peeking out behind the image which is my favorite! Love Doilies!!!   I edged all of my papers with Tim Holtz distress ink in Brushed Corduroy.  I also added some light distress ink around the edges of my image in Dried Marigold.  The image I cut out using my Spellbinders in Standard Circles Large.  I layered that on top of another Spellbinders called Lacey Circles. The pretty teal rose and orange cherry blossoms are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I sprayed these up with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold to give them some pretty shimmer. I glued my flowers down using Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect.  The sentiment "Oh Baby"comes from an MFT mini Baby stamp set and I stamped this on a handmade banner using memento ink in Black Tuxedo. The pretty teal ribbon is from the Michael's dollar bin!  Such easy ribbon to work with and it has great texture.  I want to get other colors for sure! I love finding great buys!!! :)  Finally, the teal rhinestones on the corner are Kaisercraft.
