Hi

Sometimes you see a picture and lots of happy thoughts come to mind. Here's the picture I'm referring to... isn't it a happy scene?  My favourite colour is blue and there's just enough blue here to bring smiles...


Of late, I've been pretty in love with Paper Smooches, I think the happy stamp images stir something within me.  Here's my take of the above Sparks challenge:


I used the images to mimic the frames on the wall, and coloured them with some of the colours I see in the picture.  I use the following images - the sun, heart, apple and gingerbread man from FOLKal Points with the toast from Wake Up, and sentiment from My Peeps.  The images were coloured with Copic Markers ( Toast & sentiment - BG02 & YG11, Sun - Y06 &Y08, Apple - B91, B93, YG01, YG07, E97 & colourless blender, Gingerbread man - E93, E97 & R21, Heart - R22 & R24).  On the white cardstock I added two score lines with my Scor-buddy to mimic the skirting on the wall, and added patterned paper (BasicGrey Picadilly) below it.


To make the images pop, I added Glossy Accents on them.  Finally I added some faux stitches, pearls and twines to finish off the card.

Hope you like the card & do participate in the challenge - I'd love to see your take too.

Thanks for visiting today.
