Happiness Be Yours

Hello, thank you for swinging by today.

Where do i start to tell you how this card came together… First today’s challenge over on Cute Card Thursday is “Anniversary” so i knew i wanted to make a card that’s elegant.

The scalloped paper and the simple striped one from Basic Grey’s Origins pack did the trick – i would have not had an idea how to use this paper in any other way. I had a hard time combining it with any of the other patterns in that stack.


Than i ran into problems how to color the very cute “Prom Tilda
in. This card was supposed to be a quick one but omg.. i colored first Tilda with Violin in, than “Prom Tilda” 2x until i was happy with her green dress. Still… it did not look “right” so i added that cut out shape with one of the Nestabilities and i was DONE with the layout. The rest was fast. But boy.. that was a bad card making day for me :-)

Since i know i will not use the second scalloped paper anymore i have added it to the inside of the card and cut an other shape with fleur de lis Nestabilities out from white paper, to add the note to the recipient.
