Let's Celebrate

Happy July! Goodness, time is flying!

My No Sugar June is over. It was hard at times, but not really as hard as I expected. Mostly, it was darn inconvenient. Almost everything you can grab on the go is sugary. One of the reasons I gave up sugar for a month is that I stress eat sweets. There were a few times where I definitely wanted something because I was having a bad day, but I think I did okay at feeling my feelings instead of numbing them with M&Ms. :) I found some delicious Lara Bars - chocolate chip peanut butter and coconut cream pie - and will keep eating them even though I'm letting some sugar back in my life.

On to the card, which is why you're here. ;) This is another scrappy card I made for the Stamping With Friends monthly challenge and also for the Moxie Fab Mixy Matchy challenge.

This took me longer than it should have considering the layout. I think some of the scraps are from 6 years ago! (Why, yes, I do think a deep clean of the craft room is in order. Funny you should ask.) The only thing not a scrap is the glitter paper. I just couldn't find anything that looked right in the scrap hoard. The banners are all hand cut. The sequins I found at a thrift store. I love this Lawn Fawn sentiment from Happy 4th. They have such great fonts!

I'm linking this at Simon Says Stamp Challenge. Gotta love an Anything Goes week. :)
Thanks for looking!
