Oh Happy Day!

Hi friends! I hope you are all having a great week! Today I have a quick card to share that I made the other day....

The base is white cardstock, sized at 5 x 5.5" (I don't know why the weird size, it just kinda worked out that way, lol). All of the colored & patterned papers are from the "Best Friends" cartridge. The patterned background layer is edged with Fiskars Paper Edgers in "Victorian". The yellow background is cut from the "Elegant Edges" cartridge (which I just bought & am loving!) and is embossed with the "Birds & Swirls" Cuttlebug folder. The edges of this layer & the card base are inked with some Martha Stewart ink in "Hibiscus".

The flower image is from the "Florals Embellished" cartridge (pg. 37, cut at 4"). The gems in the center are from my stash and the faux stitching & dots were done with a white Sakura gel pen. The twine is from the The Twinery and I used some Stickles in "Eucalyptus" on the leaves.

The sentiment is from 2 separate K Andrew Designs stamp sets:  "Owly Hoo Sentiments" and "Of Mice & Lil Men".

As you can see, I only used a part of some of the sentiments, easily done by just inking the part I wanted & wiping away any excess with a Q-tip or baby wipe. This makes the stamp sets even more versatile than they already are!
