Oh Happy Day - Take 2



I wasn't thrilled with the first card I created (see this blog post) so I created this card for all of the same challenges.  I started by trying to recreate the first card since I wasn't happy with the embossing. But this time I couldn't really see where some of the stamping with Versamark was and the sentiment ran into the flowers.  What to do?  Cut out the flowers - I like this design better than the first!  I wanted the dry embossing on the card so I ended up stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black and cutting it out.  I added Pretty Pink Posh sequins to embellish.

Essentials By Ellen Mix It Up Challenge: I used Hero Arts Shadow ink and white detailed embossing powder

  7. That is a really neat design that you used for the heat embossing! Was that done over a piece that you had brayered? Love the addition of the sequins too!
