Hues of Happiness

Happiness Abounds and the Tea Boutique DSP

It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week it is a sketch challenge. 


When I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use the Tea Boutique DSP.  I used 3 different designs from the pack and love how it easy it was to mix and match the different patterns.


The sentiment is from the Happiness Abounds stamp set.  I like the look of 2 fonts in one sentiment.  This set has 7 great sentiments and will definitely be a set I will reach for often.  There are 6 floral images and 2 different leaves and all of them can be cut out using the coordinated dies from the Blossoming Happiness Dies.


I stamped the flowers from the Happiness Abounds set in Sweet Sorbet ink directly on the Tea Boutique DSP.  I like how the design on the DSP adds interest and texture to the flowers.  I need to remember to do this more often.


I colored some rhinestones with the Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Blends and used them for the centers of the flowers.  There are In Color Matte Dots  available but I didn't have them at the time I made this card.  I do like  having the option of coloring embellishments like rhinestones and pearls with Stampin' Blends.  

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for the challenge,
