You Make Me Happy!

I am really enjoying playing with the new Gina K Designs stamps! This is another card made from the "Baskets of Happiness" set ... again although it can be an Easter set it certainly isn't limited to Easter. I created this card for this week's sketch challenge over at SCS.

I stamped the flower image onto white card and colored .... I used my paper piercing mat & tool to created the pierced corners in all the corners. I then used my script cuttlebug embossing folder to create the background on my blue panel, the raised areas were highlighted by sponging blue bayou over the top of them. I had to color my grosgrain ribbon to get the color I needed ... this was done using my alcohol markers. The background on my pink card was created using Cornish Heritage Farm's Weave Backgrounder with pretty in pink ink.

The plastic flower outline is another new product from Gina K Designs ... these come as a white color that you can then color using various products ... I used my alcohol markers again.
