Wishing You Happiness

I made this card for JustRite Friday Color Challenge #071 - "Perfect Pastels".

This week we were supposed to use yellow, pink, peach and neutral. I decided to use this peach paper from DCWV Mariposa Stack, a yellow from Bazill, and the pink is from my stash. For the neutral, I used a generic white. I still can't afford to buy stamping supplies, so I hope you aren't tired of seeing me use the same stamps over and over!

For this card I used JustRite's Elegant Frames set. I cut the frame with JustRite's Nested Frames and Sentiments custom dies by Spellbinders. (I tried to link to it, but I can't find it on their site, so it must be out of stock). The frame and saying were stamped with Distress Peeled Paint, and the edges were accented with the same ink. I cut one of Spellbinders tags three in half and added it to the top and bottom of the label.

When I was deciding what to do with my Flower Soft the other day, I was thinking that quite a few of my JustRite stamps would look pretty decorated with it. I had several pots of Flower Soft with pink, peach and yellow in them, so I added some to look like flowers on the frame, then added Buttercup Liquid Pearls to the lacy parts at the top and bottom of the frame.

The Frame is mounted dimensionally over the yellow ribbon.

I then added Prima flowers to two of the corners, and Queen & Co pearls to the other corners and the ribbon and frame. The flowers aren't purple tinted in real life, they actually match the card much better than it looks in the photo.
