A Card Today

I found a new site called Colourful Creations and thought l would give a couple of their challenges a go.
I made this card using the word "happiness" which was the criteria for Say it with Words

The papers and stickers are from American Crafts Dear Lizzy collection.
I embossed my background paper and wrapped ribbon around one edge. Then l layered up another paper, fussy cut some flowers and layered a couple of stickers over the top. The flowers are Prima
I also did this layout for another of their challenges, the E Challenge was to have flourishes and punching on your page.
I used border punches for the 2 strips under my photo, and made 3 photo mats with the same punch. The flourishes were stamped with StazOn onto clear acetate and l simply cut around them and scattered them on the layout.
The scallop circle is from Spellbinders.
The papers are Kaiser and American Crafts, flowers are from Prima
I used a mask, added texture paste and once dry added ink over the top. I finished it all off with some machine sewing.
Here are some close ups

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
