Go to Your Happy Place

This week’s Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is a Trend Watch challenge featuring flowers.  I don't have many floral Paper Smooches sets, so I turned to the flower embellished tropical drink image from the Get Outta Town set--and this week's Mojo Monday sketch--for my card.

I colored the drink image with Spectrum Noir markers, then added a sparkly pink gem to the center of the flower for a little sparkle.  The colored image is set over a pair of panels, one a soft, solid pink cardstock and the other a fun dotted green patterned paper.  A strip of bright pink faux suede ribbon extends out from underneath each side of the image panel, adding a nice texture to the design.  The panels are arranged on a piece of pretty floral paper.  Once I had all the pieces in place, I stamped the "go to your happy place" sentiment on the bottom of the dotted panel.  I accented the image with a pink button tied with pink baker's twine.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers: Paper Smooches Get Outta Town stamp set, Crafter’s Companion ultrasmooth white cardstock, Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Spectrum Noir markers (CR6, CR4, CG1, CG4, CG4, TN3, TN5, TN7, TN8), Carta Bella True Friends 6x6 paper pad, May Arts fuchsia faux suede ribbon, KaiserCraft light pink rhinestone gem, Divine Twine pink baker's twine
