Happiness....

Good evening my fellow crafters!!!
This has been an amazing week so far. I was given the honor yesterday of being one of the Top #5 cards for Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo #26. Over the moon is what I was. My husband said to me "what is the matter with you, you are jumping around like you won the lottery...LOL" and I was doing my happy dance...LOL. Thank you so much for the honor. Another reason to be in a wonderful mood today was that my Verve stamps came in the mail today *WOOT, WOOT*. What a great day a great color challenge and some really cool stamps.

Now on to this weeks fabulous color challenge. I started it on Monday but discovered, that I don't own any Kraft paper....can you believe it. So I immediately got on the phone and called my mom and asked her if she had some. As all mom's usually do....She had a stash of it....LOL. My mom gave me some yesterday so I was off and running. Thank you so much mom for helping me complete this challenge. Love ya tons.

I wasn't sure if I could use white, as a result I went through several idea's before I settled on this one.


This is what I came up with:

I just realized that my middle layers don't show up well but each color is showing all the way around on my card. It must have been the angle of my camera. Sorry about that.

Recipe:
Stamps: Happiness Found (Verve)
Paper: Brocade Blue, Kraft, Bashful Blue (all SU)
Ink: Brocade Blue
Accessories: dimensionals, perfectly paisley folder (cuttlebug), corner rounder punch, pearls.

Wishing you all a wonderful night and a good day of crafting. Thanks again Scrapmaster's Paradise.

Til next time, share a smile with someone and remember Happiness is found. :) :)
