Happy Moments

Good morning paper~crafting friends! Today's card is perfect for the Color Throwdown Challenge.

It's a card I made quite a while ago, but never posted it to my blog.

I started by stamping the script stamp from MFT "Pretty Poppies" that was randomly inked and stamped off once to give it just a light printed background. I then went to town stamping and masking flowers from PTI's "Happiness In Bloom", "Rosie Posie" and MFT's "Inspired By" set, which is sadly no longer available. The sentiment is from Happiness In Bloom.
I then ran the panel through my machine, embossing only, using PTI"s Hexagon Cover Plate. The panel is attached to a white cardstock base. This makes a nice flat card, easy for mailing!
I'm also entering this card into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge, Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.
Thanks so much for looking! Have a very Merry Christmas! Blessings~ Birgit

That embossed design over your flowers is magical! Great idea.

This is lovely! Embossing the panel adds so much to your single layer design. Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown!
