Come along and join us at International Art and Soul and show us what you can do with the theme of 'Happiness'. I chose the theme, did so quite a few months ago and came the time to make my card and I was lost! How can I choose a theme and then be baffled as to what to make? I decided at the present time my happiness came from my crafting and so I made a colourful card with the word Happy on the front. 

My 7x7 card blank is by Craft UK. The purple card is by Papermill and I embossed it with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder of flowers. Turquoise card, also by Papermill, was cut with a Spellbinder's large circle die as the centrepiece mat. I used Brushos in purple and blues as the background to the stencil of the word Happy and bubbles which I think was from Craft Stash, but I'm not 100% sure. After cutting with the large Spellbinder's circle die it was set against the turquoise circle. I then added 3 gems, in a mottled purple/blue, to each corner of the purple card. The gems were from Craft Box UK.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Alphabet - I is for Interests/Hobbies
Daring Cardmakers - Stencil It
Addicted to Stamps - Any Occasion
Dragonfly Dreams - Indoor Hobbies
Arty Divas - Anything Goes

Bye, see you next time.
