Have a Lovely Day

This has NEVER happened before. I made a card for two different challenges... and they both just started today. This will never happen again, so I shall enjoy this momentous occasion. ;) 
Ellen Hutson has a new Mix It Up challenge combining their products with Paper Smooches. I used the new sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch, and came up with this: 

The flowers and leaves are from Essentials by Ellen, while the sentiment and panel die cuts are by Paper Smooches. And another rarity: I got out my spray mists to colour the flowers and leaves. Here's a close up of their splotchy goodness:

I used a thin layer of foam packaging to pop up the cream panel just a bit. Possibly the hardest part of making this card was adhering those impossibly tiny sequins (a toothpick and tweezers were involved), but I do like them. 
I think this will make a *lovely* birthday card! 


Supplies: Cougar cream & Stampin' Up garden green cardstock, Strathmore mixed media paper, Paper Smooches Blossoming Buds, Versafine onyx black ink, Zing clear embossing powder, Essentials by Ellen Bold Blossom dies, Paper Smooches Borders 1 & Stitched dies, Mr. Huey's Water Cooler & Boss Lady mists, Tattered Angels LED Red glimmer mist, Smooch Spritz Pink Sprinkles, Perfect Pearls Forever Violet mist, Art Anthology Colorations Timeless mist, Simon Says Stamp sequins

Pin It Now!

Gorgeous! And I know how you feel - I find it difficult to combine challenges, but you've nailed it! Love the pretty 'texture' and colour on the roses!
