Happiness is...

Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day at Domino Crafts yesterday with some very 'special' people! I'll say no more but you know who you are! lol!

Here's a card that hasn't had its day on the blog -

For the background, I stamped the Justrite Quilted Circles Background onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and then brushed some Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Graceful Blue Mica Powder over. I stamped the background again to extend the design and brushed more mica powder over. I removed the excess using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Ornate Happiness Squares Clear Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Graceful Blue Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ornate Squares.

I made a flower out of Blue/White Striped Grosgrain and cut a couple of leaves using Sue Wilson's Curled Vines Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Graceful Blue PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Hi Julia,
    A Very Pretty Card I Really Love The Fabulous Background I Love The Colour Palette You've Chosen Its Also Great To See The Flower Made From The Beautiful Ribbon. And The Spellbinder Die That You've Used.
    Its Just So Very Sad I Don't Use My Spellbinders Dies Any More Since Sue Brought Out Her Own Collection.
    I Won't Be Commenting For About A Month As I'm Going On Holiday
    So Please Don't Think I've Deserted Your Blog.
