Stampin’ Up! Watts of Courage for the World Autism Day Blog Hop!

Good morning, y’all!  Today I’m fortunate to be taking part in a wonderful Blog Hop celebrating World Autism Awareness Day (which is…well…today!) 🙂

The card I’m sharing today uses a few ideas from the catalog for this super cute Watts of Occasions stamp set.  I grabbed a couple of ideas from several cards that SU! used as examples and combined them on this quick and easy card.  Take a look-see:
