Sending Lots Of Happiness

Hello there my crafty friends!  I started with the Stripes 'n Dots Paper pad and selected the dotty pink, striped turqupise and the dotty green papers.  I used the turqoise and pink to create the background and then embossed it with the Floral Vines embossing folder.  Next I cut the Buttercup Foliage Panel out of the Dotty green.  I cut the Buttercup Floral panel out of the dotty pink paper.  I cut the rectangle bacing piece out of white card covered with a piece of sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing paper off and attached the green foliage panel to it, then coated the remaining exposed adhesive with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I cut the four flowers out of the other panel and attached them on top.  I used clear micro beads in the two open flower's centres.  Next I cut the backing frame for the panel.  I cut two of them, one in white and one in black.  I cut the black one in half down the centre and moved it outward a smidge from the white one.  I cut the Bauble Branch in black and attached it coming from the bottom of the panel as an accent.  I used the Sending Lots of Happiness sentiment cut in black and adhered it in the upper right of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  8" in size.  All for now.

Hi Sue, having been unsuccessful all day I thought I would have one last try before going to bed and was so relieved to find today's post. I guess something went wrong with the timing programme. This is a lovely card and deserves to be seen. Love that it is nearly all made from your papers and the Buttercup Floral panel really suits the colours. Hope tomorrow's post arrives on schedule :-)

Beautiful card. I love the way you have used the paper pad in various ways . The background is very pretty and the buttercup panel looks gorgeous.
