If you came from visiting Betty, you're in the right place!!  For my card today, I used the Happy Place set along with the Classy Label Die.  The medallion stamp in this set reminded me of the pattern in the inspiration photo.  I just LOVE the colors from the inspiration photo and the stripes!  For a little sparkle, I added some Shine Bright Sequins.  Next on today's hop is Laurie!!

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!
