Embrace Happiness

















I was able to play in Becky's Compose a Card Challenge #4 and I just LOVE her color combo! I added the Summer Sunrise to mine because of the flowers. If you haven't played in Becky's challenge, it's a lot of fun! She gives you cutting instructions and a color combo, but the stamps and layout are all up to you! This challenge called for True Black, Ripe Avocado and White, using a negative stamp for a border and the positive for the background. You also had to use a Vintage button and some satin ribbon.

I used the Text Boxed set from Papertrey Ink for my card. The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages. I added some stitching along the right side to balance how I offset my focal piece. If you haven't played along in one of Becky's challenges, give it a try! You will love it! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Text Boxed, Mega Mixed Messages (PTI); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Ripe Avocado, Summer Sunrise (PTI); Paper- True Black, Ripe Avocado (PTI); Accessories- button, jute, satin ribbon; Finished card measures 4"x8"

Great card, love this color combo (just used it for a card posting tomorrrow except I used brown instead of black).

Love the layout as well!

How pretty! Adding the yellow is such a cheery touch for those flowers, I agree.

Oh wow. Charmaine this card stands out! Aren't you clever to have added the yellow and I LOVE how you changed up the LO just a bit to add pizazz. I WAS going to attempt this challenge, but your card just outshines anythign that I could even come up with!
