Happiness Grows!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's sketch at The Sweet Stop, SSS41!!

For my card, I used the gorgeous Garden of Friends set by There She Goes. I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. The smaller flower was stamped twice, colored and popped up on foam tape. I added a bit of Clear Spica Glitter Pen to the center of each flower.

The patterned paper is Urban Garden by SU! and the cardstock is Old Olive & Night of Navy, also both from SU!

I finished off my card with the sentiment, "In a garden of friends...happiness grows" that I punched out with my Word Window Punch, and a double ribbon of Whisper White Organdy and Old Olive Twill. I added two Neutrals Brads and the Night of Navy panel was run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.

You can see what the Sugar Babies have created with this sketch right here!!
