Happiness is....

A card that comes together quickly and as planned!! :-)

Welcome, and thank you for visiting.

This card is needed for a birthday celebration, and I wanted it to be bold in it's colours.  I also used a current sketch pattern as my base.

The center panel is a bright gold card, and the image is from a set put out by The Crafts Meow called Happiness is.... The edges of the panel were sponged with Cantaloupe ink.

I gold embossed the main image on white card and painted it using ink from my Memento pads dandelion and cantaloupe. The leaves were stamped with Memento Bamboo leaves.  These images were popped up on foam to give some dimension. The sentiment is unknown and embossed with gold. 

The blue panel at the end has three paper flowers on it which have been smudged with Cantaloupe ink to match the rose, and then I added some half pearls.  The ribbon has gold hearts on it as the card is for a dear friend.

The final panel is some handmade paper that I bought as part of a pack at the local Warehouse (Think Michaels or K Mart in USA)

These three panels were mounted on white card which I sponged the edges of with  bamboo leaves ink before layering it onto the green base.  A few more pearls were added to the main panel as a finishing touch.

Thank you for visiting, and may your day be blessed.
