...this is Happiness

Welcome to this week's Friends With Flair! I used three Ippity stamps on my card today from the Here and Now set. It is very rare that you will hear me say this, but I really love the way my card turned out :) I just adore this embossing folder, I can see myself using this lots! To create the background, I embossed PTI's vintage cream cardstock, then inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and dotted the center of each flower with Perfect Pearls, available in MANY colors at Paper Wings and inked the leaves with some chalk ink. I distressed the A Muse french roast cardstock a bit to show some of the white core.


I am also entering this in the Shabby Tea Room challenge.
 Thanks for visiting my blog today, the next stop on the hop is Erin, or you can visit the Unity blog for a full list of participants!
TGIF!
