Share Joy Challenge #40

Happy Thursday, friends!

I am stopping by to share a card for this weeks Share Joy Challenge! The choices are either the sketch, or the Clean and Simple. I believe we know which way I lean! ;0)

I started with a white card base, and blended in a bit of blue Distress Ink on the bottom portion. I sat that aside while I stamped some of the cute flowers from Oh Happy Day onto a piece of white card stock, using Versamark ink, and white embossing powder

I then added color to the die cuts using the Zig Clean Color Brush Markers, and die cut them out with the coordinating dies. I adhered them to the card base using tiny pieces of foam tape, and added a sentiment that was stamped onto a banner shape. I then finished it with a few sequins.

Here is a look at the graphic, as well as the details about how to play along! I hope you'll join us!
