Happiness Blooms

Hi everyone!  Welcome to this week's progressive challenge with Delightful Inspiration.  The cute floral image used on today's card is the Happiness Blooms digital stamp by Designed2Delight.

My card base is Blue Bayou layered with White Cardstock then patterned paper stitched around the edges. The shadow layer is Pale Plum finished using the corner rounder punch. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I rounded the corners and paper pierced around the edges then layered it on Blue Bayou. To embellish the card I added organdy ribbon and snow pearls.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Hi Karen, this card is so bold and I love the rich colors! I really enjoy the way you did the stitching holes and then the real stitching around the outside.

Nice card! I love the coloring. I'm a huge fan of the brown and blue/teal combination. I love the detail of the stitching and paper piercing. Have a great day, and thanks for sharing!
