Happiness

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I randomly stamped the butterfly from the Justrite Butterfly Dreams Stamp Set using Perfect Medium. I dusted over with Violet Frost Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Three Dies and inked through the die with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I cut 2 Couture Creations Elegant Motif out of Rich Plum Card and made a rosette. I did a YouTube video a couple of years ago showing how to do this with another die, but the principal is the same. You can find it on this post.

I made 2 flowers out of White Crochet Ribbon and cut a couple of leaves out of Rich Plum Card using Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Plum around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
