Happy Thoughts

Hello everyone!

I'm here today with a card for the Sparkle and Shine Challenge Three.  The theme for this challenge is a photo source and here it is.







I was inspired by the colour palette the most.  Those colours make me smile as I remember that spring is really just around the corner!  Even thought we got another 10 cm of snow last night!  *sigh*


I used distress inks and added them to the card with a blending tool and a piece of acetate that I cut out a curve shape.  

I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle dies and cut out both the white and burgundy panels.  I popped the first panel with foam tape.  I took the Mama Elephant "Happy" die and cut out a piece of SSS slate card stock, even though it looks black in the picture.  I stamped the "thoughts" sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink.  

To finish off the card I took the Spring mix sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and glued them on with multi matte medium and took my Wink of Stella glitter pen and added some glitter to the die cut. 

Supplies:
Pretty Pink Posh Spring Mix Sequins - PPP
ME - Happy Everything  SSS
Distress inks - Squeezed Lemonade, Festive Berries and Cracked Pistatio SSS
Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangles SSS 
Versafine Onyx Black Ink  - Michaels


Thanks for stopping by.  See you again soon!  Hugs!
