Happiness Always

Here it is Monday already and I'm only just now getting a chance to mash it up with the gang from The friday mashup. This is challenge 18 and the challenge is Create a card with Glitter and Create an Anniversary Card. 

It took me a little awhile but here's what I came up with. The colors I 've chosen are Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, and Black  I think they look really nice together.

 The sentiment is from The Whimsical Words Set. And I used a retired jumbo wheel for the back ground. Once again I can't remember the name of it. I used Tinsel embossing powder on the black and cherry cobbler and on the card base I just left it as a water mark. The Baja breeze Butterflies are die cut from the Beautiful Wings die. I added a little glitter to the them and gave them pearl bodies.there was a couple of pearls left so I decide to add them on the bottom, A white grosgrain ribbon and I call this card finished.

I wish my pictures would have come out nicer. It's a really yellow kind of day out and my pictures just kept coming out tinted that's a white back drop believe it or not. Well this is my mashup card. I hope you like it. go over to the friday mashup and play along. Bye for now and happy stamping.

Hi Karen, I hope you enjoyed your stint as a Guest Designer on the Friday Mashup, it's fabulous to see you playing along with us.

Your card certainly has Glitter, that was such a clever way to incorporate it. Good Luck.

Great card Karen, I love all the glitter and yes, you are right, those colors look fab together!

I've had the same issue trying to get photos...its been very rainy and cloudy here, making it a bit hard to get good photos of my cards! We better practice before the winter hits :)

I touched your photos up for ya and emailed them to you.. Just a little Photoshop trick I figured out.. :)

This card is so pretty, you know I'm a sucker for those Butterflies! And the sparkly glitter just adds that perfect touch!

Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup this week. Good to see you back to stamping and posting again!
