Happy...Happy!

Edite - this card was chosen as a winner at The Pink Elephant Challenge #78!


Good Morning...This is my first of several posts today! I'm going to the beach for a mini vacation and I wanted to share a few things with you!

This first card could be birthday, could be wedding...I left it a generic Happy Happy card because I haven't decided it's intended recipient yet! That's one of the nices things about card making...I can change it to be whatever I want!

I started by using my Flourishes Let Them Eat Cake stamp set. I had my eye on this stamp for a while with this glittery embossing in mind way before I bought it and when I finally got it I couldn't wait to try it out! I stamped the cake plate with StazOn jet black. I need this to be very sharp and pick up on all the detail! Then I embossed the three layers of the cake with Ranger pink embossing glitter...I just love how it turned out! I glued and glittered the little flowers myself with ultra fine glitter and the tiny black ones are colored flowers that I dabbed with my black copic marker!

I dolled it up with some ruffly ribbon, pearls, bling on the black flowers, that oh so pretty lace doilie and ta da...a card dripping with girliness! The sentiment is from a new line at M's called Craft Affair made by Hampton Art.
