Happiness Always

Hi all,
I'm playing along with the friday mashup today. Holly found an awesome picture to inspire us with color and she's mashing it up with some dry embossing. No problem.

Isn't this a great photo. The colors are Basic Black, Basic Grey, and Daffodil Delight. I found mixing these colors with drying embossing to be quite easy and elegant. Right away I thought of a retired background stamp that I must omit I've never used. It wasn't even on the block yet. Want is wrong with me.....Here is the card I created.

All my supplies are from Stampin' Up

cardstock- basic black, basic grey, daffodil delight, and very vanilla
ink- basic grey
stamp sets- papillon potpourri, happy harmony,and french flair
punches-scallop trim border, elegant butterfly, scallop oval, and oval
ribbon- basic black 1/4" grosgrain
embossing folder-perfect polka dots

I hope you like the card. Thank you for stopping by.

I love how the butterflies look like they are being carried through the wind!

So glad to have you playing along with us at The Friday Mashup Karen!

Love the swirlies! Perfect with butterflies in flight. Sigh, I never got that background stamp. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.
