Happy Card

Hello friends!  I hope you are having an enjoyable Sunday.  I was lucky enough to receive some wonderful crafting supplies for my birthday and having so many ideas for them in my head.  Looking forward to some fun craft "therapy" time!

Today, I have a card to share using an older line from Graphic 45 called "Secret Garden."  This 8x8 paper pad goes a long way!

Using orange cardstock, I matted each piece of pattern paper as well as the image and adhered them to a card base using foam tape.  Love the pretty eyelet trim I placed through the center.  Prima flowers were accented by Cheery Lynn diecut leaves.  The sentiment is a die from Recollections.  Stickles were then added to the sentiment and the center of the flowers in the image for some highlights.

Orange isn't a favorite color of mine (except for the subdued tones in the fall) but I think it showcases the papers very well.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate each of your sweet comments.  Have a wonderful week ahead!
