Wishing You Joy

Today's card was made using the colors from Color Throwdown.

My card is a very literal interpretation because I just fell in love with this sweet image!

I started by cutting the panels using MFT Blueprints #20. I stamped the limb from PTI's Out On A Limb selectively, in dark chocolate ink. My idea was to use die cut flowers to add to my branch but I couldn't find any small enough to fit what I wanted to do. I have so many bottles of prima flowers and found the perfect color and size that I wanted. Love it when that happens!
The leaves are punched and cut individually using a Martha Stewart punch. I gently formed the leaves with a stylus and added pearl beads to the centers of the flowers. I cut and heat embossed the small canning jar from PTI's Friendship Jar onto a piece of acetate and added it to the base of the branch. The sentiment is heat embossed in white using MFT's Blissful Butterflies.
I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday

The Challenge

Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
