Choose Happiness

Hello, what an odd weekend - weather wise. It seemed like late fall or early winter, we even had some flurries. I can't remember it ever snowing in May before?! Well, weather news aside... it's nice and sunny today, although still cold. I finally had a chance to stamp!! It's been far too long, but with so many things going on right now... I just didn't have the time. My upline, or team leader, Jenn had her monthly drop-in for her team on Friday and luckily I was able to go. I pulled out a beautiful stamp set called {Choose Happiness}. This is one of the many fabulous stamp sets that is set to retire at the end of this month so I just had to ink it up. 

I went with an almost all purple colour palette with Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum. However, I did add a bit of Old Olive for the leaves. The pretty flower image, which I'm guessing it is a Zinnia... or maybe a Dahlia but I could be wrong? What do you think?

I used a mask to give the appearance of the flowers on top of one another. To do this all you need to do is stamp your image you plan on masking onto some printer/copy paper and fussy cut it out - try not to leave a border. Stamp your first image onto your project, attach the mask with removable adhesive and stamp over it. When you remove the mask it will look like they are at different depths... neat-o, eh!? I used the mask when adding the leaves also. I just love this sentiment "When I need a friend, you're there." Such a pretty sentiment. A bit of Gold Metallic Thread, Rhinestones and that adorable little birdie and my card is complete. I hope you like it, have a good one!

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
