Happiness

We had a bridal shower for my cousin yesterday and this is the card I gave to her.



I stamped Penny Black's 4180J Reverie in Brilliance pearlescent purple twice on the card base. then I stamped 4185F Happiness in black craft ink, heat embossed it in detail clear embossing powder (my favorite EP!), cut the sentiment with an oval nestabilities die, left the die in place and sponged more of the Brilliance purple ink around the sentiment, and then popped the oval up on foam tape. The gorgeous purple vellum flower and leaf are from my friend Carol (thanks again, girlie!). The pearl in the center of the flower was colored with a V15 Copic marker.

Have a great Monday!
