Pocket full of... Happy Thoughts

Here is the card I made yesterday. I started it in the afternoon, but I couldn't finish it until late last night. I just had a hard time visualizing the finished product. But once I chose my patterned paper, it all came together nicely!

Here's a little update about my life: I've been having Dr. apts a lot because I'm 34 weeks pregnant now and I have gestational diabetes. It's not too bad; I just have to test my blood sugar and follow a strict diet. I haven't been put on insulin yet. We didn't have running water in our house for a week 2 weeks ago, which was VERY difficult. I got sick and I'm certain it was because I wasn't able to wash my hands. Anyway, I now have the laundry and dishes caught up and the house cleaned up so I can spend a little time crafting. Maybe I'll get to make a few cards today before my Dr. apt.

I am using the color combo from ColourQ and the photo from Runway Inspired - I was inspired by the black polka dots and colorful patterns on her dress. I got the idea from this card which has been on my pinterest board forever!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Kraft
B&Ts: Surf's Up, Tommy
Stamps: Scroll Album WOTG, Rugged Dude, Card Chatter - Sympathy
Other: Black Ribbon Rounds
