A Happy Hooray CCMC309

Wow, we have a fun sketch this week for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  It's a perfect layout for showcasing some of your stamps!

I used a combination of Black, White and Strawberry Slush for my card... I love that combination!!  The patterned DSP is from the Back to Black collection and it has some great prints in it!  This particular print works quite well with the new set, A Happy Hooray, which looks to be quite a versatile set with its various words and images ... and it has a feather, which makes me happy as I was quite sad that my feather set retired in May.

I colored the flower stamp with markers (the colors match better IRL), stamped it then punched it out with the Scallop Punch, which echoes the scallops down the side of the top layer.  I stamped a couple more flowers, cut them out and adhered them with Dimensionals.  The "hello" is from A Dozen Thoughts greetings set.

Stamps:  A Happy Hooray, A Dozen Thoughts.
Inks:  Basic Black and Strawberry Slush
Paper:  Back to Black DSP; Strawberry Slush, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstocks
Accessories:  Polka Dot TIEF, 1-3/4" Scallop Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Basic Rhinestones.

Here is our sketch challenge this week:

The black and white with the pop of color is very striking! I love how you added some rhinestones to give it some bling. Really lovely card, Margaret.
