Choose Happiness CCMC378

Happy Thursday, everyone!  And Thursday brings us fun in the form of the weekly Create with Connie and Mary Challenge; this week we have a nifty Color Challenge featuring Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede!

The Choose Happiness set has a number of great images which makes it so versatile; all here are from that set except for the Gorgeous Grunge "splatters".  

I stamped the border in Soft Suede, add strips of designer papers and stamped one strip with the leaf stamp to bring in more pf the Mossy Meadow color.  Some fine Victorian Lace was added onto the script DSP and then Linen thread wrapped around and tied in a small bow.

The flower center was graced with Basic Pearls of three sizes then the front layer attached to the Mossy Meadow cardstock base with Dimensionals.  I just realized I didn't use the Big Shot on this card!! That's a rare occasion for me, lol!!  Even the little woodgrain flag is a stamp in the set and was cut out by hand.  : )
Stamps:  Choose Happiness, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks:  Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Whisper White & Mossy Meadow cardstocks; Cherry on Top DSP, Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack
Accessories:  Blender Pen, Linen Thread, Basic Pearls, Victorian Lace, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Paper Snips, Candy Dots

Here is the Color Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary this week:

What a lovely collage style card Margaret - the colours are really mellow and I love the addition of the lace and linen thread too.

What a beautiful mix of papers with this flower and leaves! The patterns and textures are lovely together!

Alison Barclay said...

This is gorgeous....very shabby chic and very delicate considering the three colours this week were so bold. Beautiful!

I tried to create a card with the colors and the Choose Happiness stamp set but it was not working for me at all! I totally love what you created especially the multiple layers across the bottom.

I love your soft lace and flower paired with the hard wood. It is very balanced and beautiful!

This is very pretty and feminine. Has that shabby chic feel. Very pretty!

Oh, I adore the mix of patterns! I agree with Lisa's Shabby Chic comment! I love that style and I love your card!
