Happiness Abounds for 3 Challenges

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by three challenges!  The Stampin' Up! Only Challenges #303 is celebrating Flowers this week, and I love the sweet little bouquet from the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set.  The Colour Challenge #473 at CAS Colours & Sketches inspired the colour palette.  The TGIF Challenges  Sketch #372 inspired the layout.  Please click on the hyperlinks and visit the blogs.  There is so much talent here - enjoy the inspiration - and consider leaving a comment for the designers.


Assembly & Trix:

***Trix, colour fine lined stamped images with Blender Pens to colour in tiny areas like these Pear Pizzazz leaves.  Stamp the image with Memento Black Ink and colour the flowers using Blender Pens and ink pads.  Crushed Curry, Gorgeous Grape and Pear Pizzazz after stamping with Memento Black Ink.     

***Trix, mask off the extra words from the sentiment, using post it notes, ink up the stamp, peel off the post it notes and stamp 'many thanks' on a 1/2 inch x 4 1/4 inch strip of Basic White cardstock with Memento Black Ink. 

*  The Pear Pizzazz card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4  with a 4 x 5 1/4 embossed layer.  I used the recently retired Tasteful Textile 3 D Embossing Folder, but choose any subtle background layer you wish to keep clean lines and uncluttered visual space.  The Basic White layer measures 1 1/2 x 4.
