Happiness Always

Hi everyone,


Hope that you week has started off well.


I wanted to share a card with you that I created with the photo inspiration from Just Add Ink and the sketch layout from Come and Get It Challenges.


The colours I have used with the photo inspiration in mind are:


Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Whisper White


For the sketch, I created the circle area on the left hand side of the card with the smaller flowers from the Array of Sunshine stamp set and then layered the larger flower in the middle of the circle.


I stamped the larger flower in Pool Party for the first layer.  For the second layer of the flower, I inked the stamp with Pool Party and added a touch of Calypso Coral with markers before I stamped the image. The last layer is in Calypso Coral.


For the oval part of the sketch, I added a layered Calypso Coral butterfly with a smaller butterfly in Whisper White. Both butterflies were created using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.


The smaller flowers in the right hand top corner were punched out in Pool Party card stock using the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch.


The sentiment is from the Happy Greetings stamp set which is no longer available but I felt it the sentiment suited my card.  The only other addition of course is ‘bling’.


Here is my card:





Stamp set: Array of Sunshine (Hostess), Happy Greetings (Retired)

Card: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake

Accessories:  Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



The colours go so well together and I am have used this wonderful stamp set Array of Sunshine a few times recently and the song “A Little Ray of Sunshine” sung by Glenn Shorrock just keeps going around and around my head.  Hehe, just a random thought I had to share  :)


Anyway, I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
