Papertrey Ink Wishing you happiness card

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a good Easter break and are rested ready for the lovely month of April. We have had glorious sunshine for almost a week now but it has been incredibly cold and the flowers are all behind. Nevertheless, the clocks have changed and we have lighter evenings to look forward to and all is right with my world.

 I'd like to share a card that was inspired by this lovely card by Laurie Willison for the current Muse challenge

IMG_9515_edited-1

I wanted to make an anniversary card for a close friend of mine so I took the green, white and aqua colours and the use of an aperture as inspiration for this card



I made a layered mat and then cut a heart aperture in it. I cut the heart shape again and then triple stamped the flower, leaves and greeting images on it. Next I stamped the sentiment and tied a ribbon on the panel before using dimensional adhesive to give some depth, A few little green hearts finished it off. The stamps and dies were from Papertrey Ink apart from the little hearts which were from Simon Says Stamps.

I would also like to enter this into the Simon Says Stamps challenge for anything goes, and for my first play along with the Party Time Tuesdays challenge which is for ribbons and blooms.

Thanks for stopping by
Hugs
