You Make Me So Very Happy

Hey friends!

Oh my word, it's almost Friday!  That makes me happy.  Very Happy.  This card also makes me very happy, why?  Because it has Wplus9 on it, and Distress Inks.  Now those are two things I enjoy very much!  I made this for Wplus9's 4th B-day celebration!  Dawn's challenge was a fun one, Trends!

As you have seen lately, I am a bit obsessed with watercolors.  I love that artsy feel and the freedom it gives to create.  For this I chose a few sets from Wplus9 to create my card, including, Backgrounds & Borders 1,  and a new one, Whole Lotta Happy.

I stamped the border image in three colors of Distress Inks, Picked Raspberries, Spun Sugar, and Ripe Persimmon.  I then took a bottle of perfect pearl mist, and sprayed it liberally, until it began to run.  I then heat set it dry, and adhered it to a piece of pattered paper from BG Fresh Cut 6x6 paper pad.

Sadly, you can't really see the shimmer very well, but whoa it's sparkly!  I then took the Happy die and layered it up, adhering it, and stamping the rest of the sentiment from the Whole Lotta Happy set.  To finish it, I added some enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping in today!  I will be back soon!
