Embrace Happiness

What a difference a week makes! Last Sunday it was cold and snowing and today it's sunny and warm--80F today! Hope everyone is having wonderful weather today.

This card is for two challenges: SCS Sketch Challenge #218 and SCS Color Challenge #208. The colors this week are: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, and Pink Passion.

My base card is Chocolate Chip with a layer of DP from the Sultry 6 x 6 pad by Basic Grey. The next element is more of the same, as are the next elements, with different DP. The focal image is from the Saleabration set called Botanical Blooms and was stamped on Gina K. Pure Luxury 80 lb. paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers (see below for colors used). It was cut out and mounted on Whisper White with 3M foam squares and Crystal Effects and matted with Pink Passion and Chocolate Chip, then the whole thing was mounted on foam squares. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on Whisper White with a stamp from PTI's Mixed Messages set, then punched out with a 1" circle punch. Then it was matted with Kiwi Kiss punched out with the Designer Label punch. Some "passionately pink" jewels accent the sentiment element, which is up on foam squares, and Dew Drops from the Fresh Cut Grass collection add balance in the upper right corner. This layout was a great opportunity to use this DP, I think.

Thanks for dropping by!
