What makes You Happy?

Cold is settling in back here in Iowa.  So, I'm doing more of what makes me happy, making cards and entering challenges.  It's a great way to while away the winter days.

For today's card, I used an Elegant Eggplant base.  The color layer on the left is from the new Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper found in the 2016 Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  I have to say I just love that paper.  To the right side, I added of layer of Whisper White that uses the new Splatter Embossing Folder from Taylored Expressions.  The sentiment on the center layer is from the Hello Life stamp set.  It's stamped in Crumb Cake.  To add a bit more color to the mostly Whisper White card front, I punch Elegant Eggplant flowers using the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  For the final touch, I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of each little flower and to the bottom left corner.

The sketch I used is from Freshly Made Sketches.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. Great card. The sentiment goes well with the artistic DSP and I love the elegant eggplant base and flowers. Nice combination. Thanks for playing along with my sketch at FMS this week!

  2. This is such a fab card! I really like the sentiment you've used! Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!
