Happy Blooms

The current sketch 008 at I {Heart} Card Sketches is a fab layout and I can see me using it again. I opted not to use the circle element as it covered my pretty flowers and we can’t be having that can we?

The image is a digi from Mami Doodles called Happy Blooms, I just adore the happy smiley faces on the flowers , they are just so cheerful, just like sunflowers are to me J The image was coloured in ages ago with Promarkers so it was nice to actually make a card with it.

I covered the card blank with a sheet of paper by Fancy Pants that was from a magazine freebie. I used more freebie papers for the yellow squares and matted onto some scrap orange card. The ribbon is recycled from a box of chocolates, the embossed flowers are Prima’s with Craftwork Cards Candi dots. Finally I added a sentiment from my stash and some small glittery butterfly stickers I have had for more years than I care to remember…..

Having just come back from a day out at Birmingham Botanical Gardens I can honestly say colourful flowers make me happy, especially the nice fragrant ones like Jasmine, and we saw some orchids that were just divine, some really gorgeous little birdies in an aviary and about 3 different wedding parties. They have an amazing array of roses so I think we shall have to go back in the summer when they are in bloom.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – 6” x 6”
Image – Happy Blooms by Mami Doodles
Papers – Fancy Pants
Embellishments – foam pads, Prima Flowers, Craftwork Cards Candi, Ribbon, butterfly stickers

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
