Wishing You Happiness!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday!

I LOVE Wednesdays because I LOVE the new MFTWSC Sketch Format. I also LOVE my My Favorite Things Stamps. I sure am feeling the love today!!

This sketch is AMAZING. The possibilities are endless.

I wanted to go for a bit more elegant, yet still playful, feeling for my card today. I decided to make a card that would be appropriate for a special occasion like an engagement or wedding.

I started by choosing the sentiment for my focal panel, and I went with "Wishing You Happiness" from the truly essential More Essential Sentiments set from My Favorite Things. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Choice Buttercream Cardstock and cut it out using the oval die from the Die-Namics Layered Label Die.

The patterned paper is all from Thrift Shop from October Afternoon...I love that yellow pattern. I added a border with the oh so elegant Die-Namics Faux Crochet Border Die, and a simple satin ribbon with a bow created with The Bow Easy.

A BIG rhinestone flourish was placed under the sentiment panel, but over the ribbon. I also added more rhinestones on top and below the sentiment, as well as on the sides of the middle panel of the focal image. Once again...new sewing on this one!

I finished off the inside (shocking...I know), with a bit more of that yellow pattern I love so much, another border created with the Die-Namics Faux Crochet Border Die, and some more rhinestones, this time in between each scallop accent of the border. The sentiment, "Wishing You All The Happiness Your Heart Can Hold" is from the FABULOUS Happy Thoughts set, also from My Favorite Things.

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card today:
