A More Cheery Card

To compensate for the sympathy card that I had in my last post, I thought I would bring you something bright and cheerful today!  I decided on this card to experiment with lots of layers.  This is something that I have noticed Dawn McVey is doing a lot on her blog and I just love the looks that she is able to achieve.

I started out with a Papertrey Ink Harvest Gold cardbase and added a strip of patterned paper from my stash to ground it out.  The doily is from a package of 30 that I bought in the baking section at Joann's.  The next layer is PTI's Tag Sale 4 die in Raspberry Fizz.  Then we have a die from Delightful Doilies collection in Hibiscus Burst.  I then used the die and stamp from Fillable Frames #8.  Since PTI has not released Harvest Gold ink, I substituted Distress Ink in Scattered Straw.  I then got out PTI Flower Fusion die and stamp set.  I cut out the flower on Hibiscus Burst cardstock and stamped in Fresh Snow.  For the stem, I actually double stamped it, first in Fresh Snow and then in Hibiscus Burst.  The sentiment is also from Flower Fusion 1.  Add a ribbon through the hole on the tag die, round the bottom corners and we are all set. This card was super quick and I think that this layout will be used again!

Have a great day everybody!
