Happiness Always

Happy Friday!  I hope this week has been good to you.  It's Friday, and that means its time for another blog hop by Sketch Frenzy Friday!  Maria, is the designer of this week's sketch.  She is pretty talented, so I'm sure that you will love to play along.  Let's see what Maria has designed for us to play with:

I know you can see all the possibilities of this sketch!  It's truly fabulous!  And in my usual fashion, I 'played' with the sketch a bit.  I just loved the circle across the 'ribbon'.  I used a new stamp set that hasn't been released yet.  So, I hope you can bear with me, and have a little patience.  Here is my card:

I used the new Everyday Enchantment DSP, as well as my all time favorite: First Edition DSP.  I stamped the 'label' from Everything Eleanor stamp set, in crumb cake classic ink.  I fussy cut  the 'label' out with my paper snips.  I stamped the 'Happiness Always' from the Happy Greetings stamp set, in early espresso classic ink.  I spritz the seam binding with some water and crinkled it by hand. I made one of my favorite multi-loop bows and tied a red button on with some linen thread.  I added a half faux pearl to the button center.  I also added some of the smaller half faux pearls along the scallop borders.  I cut two different pattern papers with the tasteful trim die, to create the scallop border.  I gave the whole card a sprtiz of home made crumb cake champagne shimmer mist.
Now, don't forget, this is a blog hop.  So your next stop is Tammy F. blog.  I hope that you join us in this challenge this week!  We'd love to see what you create!
