Crazy 4 Challenges.......Happy

Happy Saturday peeps!!

Time for a new challenge at Crazy 4 Cahllenges.

It is a new month and we have a new challenge Hostess, The fantastic Frances Byrne from StampOwl's Studiois this month's hostess.

Each month we have a new Guest Designer to play along with us and this month our Guest Designer is Anna Wight from Sassy & Sweet Blog.  

This week our challenge is a fun and easy one:

According to the holiday insights web site which list special days for the month, this month is Admit You're Happy Month. To kick start our month of challenges let’s create a card that includes the word 'Happy' on it.

I pulled out my favorite stamp set, the hostess set called Best Thoughts.
I stamped the image with black stazon and colored with my aqua painter, I used Cherry Cobbler ink on the flower and Old Olive on the leaves, I then fussy cut it out flower and added it to my circle die cut with a few dimensionals.

The base of the card is Basic Black card stock and then the next layer is more Basic Black that I embossed with the Elegant Dots EF.
Next up is layer of Silver Foil and then the pretty Black striped paper is from the Naturals pack.
Next is another piece of silver foil. I cut these all to make my flag banners.
I added a bot of silver thread behind my main image and added it all to the base with dimensionals.

The Happy Birthday sentiments comes from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set.

Be sure and head over to the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog to see what the rest of the ladies did with this "happy" challenge!

Thanks for stopping by today!
