A Happy Life is Made of Little Things and a Winner!

Today I'm sharing a clean and simple card that I made for last week's Color Challenge and Teapot Tuesday Challenge over on Split Coast.
The colors from Karen Barber were Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral and More Mustard - a rather daunting combination don't you think??!  A true challenge.... but all the cards in the gallery looked beautiful! The inspiration teapots from da Mudder had lady bugs on them. 

My pretty bug and sentiment are from the Little Lady set by Papertrey Ink.   I embossed a square Nestability on the card and then adhered the stamped panel inside the frame using foam tape.

I'm also happy to announce the winner from my Fun Fall Blog hop post!  The random comment winner was: Gail  comment #42  chosen by
