Bottled Happiness SIP card for #CASColours&Sketches494

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the Stampin' Up!® November SIP card challenge, SIP or  #simplestamping = Stamps Ink & Paper, this month we can add an Embellishment.  And, the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge  #494 - Colours.  Use Pear Pizzaz, Rich Razzleberry & Mint Macaron.  Oh my gosh they're so beautiful together!  Please click on the hyperlink above to visit the challenge.

Assembly & Trix,

***Trix, use the Stamparatus, #146276.  Apply Rich Razzleberry ink to the flowers with Sponge Daubers, #133773 and stamp onto 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White card base.  Then apply Mint Macaron to the accent flowers of the image. 

*  Use the second plate of the Stamparatus to stamp the Pear Pizzazz leaves.  ***Trix, line up the two stamps using the flower centres.

***Trix, move the card base over and up on the base of the Stamparatus, to line up the placement of the second flower bouquet.

*  Stamp the sentiment from Handmade Wishes, #159684 with Mint Macaron ink on a 5/8 inch wide piece of Basic White cardstock.  Cut the strip ends so it nestles in to the flower images. 

 *  Double up a piece of White Bakers Twine, #155475 and adhere with a glue dot so it lines up with the sentiment.  Adhere the sentiment strip with dimesionals.

Ok folks so here's my question for you.  Do you ever add a sentiment just because you like the font and think it works perfectly with the image?  This neat little stamp set is a mix of fonts, but I just liked the size of 'Christmas'.  So I'm thinking it may become a 'Christmas Thanks' card, with thanks on the inside for someone that may host a Christmas gathering  - Or - a 'Christmas Wishes' card with the word 'Wishes' inside.  Who knows, I like the font!  :)

- However - I may make another and use the Go To Greetings Stamp Set, #158763  - Stay tuned, I'll mix up the colours :)
