Happy Times

Since the paper pack was already on my table I decided to use CTMH's new Happy Times collection again. This paper is just so pretty.

On a card base of white, a panel of DSP in ombre tones was adhered along with a die cut doily from foiled cardstock and a strip of plaid paper. The next layer was a panel of Glacier cardstock that was texture embossed with little hearts along with a three-layer square of papers all popped up on foam. Next the gold cord was added, followed by the three die cut flowers with enamel dot centers, also popped up with foam. The inside was decorated with a die cut flower.

The layout was inspired by the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #159. Be sure to visit the blog to view the cards and
scrapbook pages on display.

  1. Love the gold doily and gold cord, stunning with the rest of your very colorful design paper and flowers. I thought the sketch was a little difficult but you came up with a great interpretation of the sketch. I love layers so not sure why I found it difficult.

  2. So many lovely layers pulled together! Very pretty card and thank you for sharing it with us at AHSC this week.
