Happiness Always

I took a few minutes to make a couple of cards.  All of the flowers, leaves and the bird and butterfly are stamped and punched from my scrap pile.

I pulled out a few different shades of pink, orange and yellow cardstock.  I then stamped one color of pink ink on all of the pink card stock.  I did this for all the pinks then repeated the process for all of the orange and yellows.  After I was done stamping I started punching the flowers out.   

I embossed the white cardstock with the the Stylized Flowers embossing and the second piece with the Polka Dot embossing folders. I cut them half and attached them to my pattern paper. I added ribbon then my sentiment.

I stamped and punched out the bird then stamped the butterfly.  I don't have this butterfly punch so I hand cut him out and added a little bit of stickles to hom. I added a few leaves behind the bird and butterfly the started adding the flowers. 

After everything was in place I used Glossy Accents to attach the bead to the center of each flower.  To finish the inside of the card I used the Swirling lace punch on a piece of the pattern paper.
