Ippity Wednesday - My True Joy

Hi there! Happy Wednesday! Only two more work days after this and then we'll have a weekend. Can you tell I love weekends? :)

Since it's Wednesday, that means it's time to share my Ippity card for this week. I chose to use the My True Joy set because it's been awhile since I used that one. I paired it with one of my favorite paper collections - Echo Park Country Drive...okay, so pretty much ALL Echo Park is my favorite!!

I colored the flower image and cut it out with Copic markers. I added the scalloped border to my patterned paper and stitched around all the edges. I finished my card off with two cordoroy brads, a ribbon, a little twine, and one of my handmade stick pins I've been making. I just love making those and using them on my cards!

Pretty soon I'm going to be doing a giveaway of some of my stick pins that I've soon as I get enough energy to sit down and take pics of all of them! Be sure to check back in the near future for that. 

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention...this card follows the Viva la Verve October Week 1 Challenge on Split Coast Stampers. I love this sketch!!

That's it for me today, but be sure to hop over to the I Heart {ippity} blog to see the rest of the inspiration from the design team!
