Happiness Is...

Welcome back to The Craft's Meow sneak peaks!  I hope you enjoyed yesterdays peak at Simply Delightful.  Today, I am sharing a card I made with my personal fav, Happiness Is...


To start I layered on patterned paper from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden 6x6 papers (swoon), distressed the edges a bit and added some white paint to shabby it up a bit.  Stamped the bee image randomly with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.


Stamped my flower onto white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers and cut it out.  After adding some seam binding and lace trim, I adhered the cut out flower and stamped leaves with foam, and adding pearls to the flower.

I stamped my sentiment in the top corner...


...and continued it to the bottom right!


So what do you think?  I love these stamps, I know I have said it before but seriously, so fun!  So you know the drill friends.  If you want to win some, "like" TCM on Facebook or leave a comment on all the DT blogs! Once again, the prizes will be awarded based on random drawing from the comments left on THREE of the Team blogs listed below!
