Happiness Be Yours

Hello, thank you for swinging by today.
Where do i start to tell you how this card came together… First today’s challenge over on Cute Card Thursday is “Anniversary” so i knew i wanted to make a card that’s elegant.
The scalloped paper and the simple striped one from Basic Grey’s Origins pack did the trick – i would have not had an idea how to use this paper in any other way. I had a hard time combining it with any of the other patterns in that stack.
Than i ran into problems how to color the very cute “Prom Tilda
in. This card was supposed to be a quick one but omg.. i colored first Tilda with Violin (a special stamp that you get when you order over at Magnolia-licous is more than $60 – this cute stamp was not for sale) in, than “Prom Tilda” 2x until i was happy with her green dress. Still… it did not look “right” so i added that cut out shape with one of the Nestabilities and i was DONE with the layout. The rest was fast. But boy.. that was a bad card making day for me :-)
Since i know i will not use the second scalloped paper anymore i have added it to the inside of the card and cut an other shape with fleur de lis Nestabilities out from white paper, to add the note to the recipient.
Happiness_1_re Recipe: Stamps all by Magnolia!
Prom Tilda #283” can be found over at Magnolia-liocus and the sentiment with that wonderful font is from last years Fortune Collection
Other: Crown silver charm can be found at Whiff Of Joy, glitter chipboard swirls, gemstone swirls by Prima Marketing, Flowers and leaves by Magnolia, Sweden
Have a great day today!
