Happy Monday Challenge...

Good Morning everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend and joyful Easter.  Our day was spent taking it easy and enjoying family and friends, the Wii and the swimming pool.

It's time for the Happy Monday challenge and this week's theme is Fellowship:  Reach out to the elderly.  So I created this card that I was hoping to achieve vintage but with a modern twist.

I used Tea-riffic with this fun new matstack that I treated myself to.  40% off at JoAnn's, how could I say no?  LOL  I also used a great new punch that I treated myself, to, this is a lattice border punch from EK Success, so pretty!

Card stock:  Neenah Card, Sea Blue (Recollections)
Paper:  Cafe Mediterrean (DCWV)
Tools: Lattice border punch (EK Success)
Embellishments:  Flowers (Prima), Glitter Glue (JoAnn's), white embroidery floss (DMC)

The layout is this week's sketch from The Sweet Stop.  Now head on over to the Happy Monday Challenge blog to join us.  Have a great week!
