OCL Floral Challenge: Wishing You Happiness

 Hi Everyone!

This year for Christmas, I received a Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet and I absolutely love it! One of my most recent purchases for it was a subscription to CardMaker Magazine. I love being able to keep issues of the magazine and not have it cluttering up space in my craft room. I also like being able to see all the different techniques and find inspiration as well.
Today I am sharing a card that I CASE'd from the March issue on page 38. The original design of the card is by Robin Arnold. I can't seem to access an online version of the magazine, so I am not able to show you the original card unfortunately.
I was also happy to finally play along again with the weekly OCL challenge. This one was to use Flower Stamps. I chose OCL's "Fabulous Florals set" I stamped 5 large flowers using Mellow Moss and So Saffron ink from Stampin Up as well as Victorian Velvet Distress ink and cut them out using my petite scalloped nestabilities; and then layered them as shown on to a Label 1 nestablities. The "Wishing You Happiness" sentiment is also from OCL. It is from their "Say it Big" set stamped in Victorian Velvet ink on Vintage Cream card stock
The patterned paper I chose is from Stampin Up and from All My Memories and I coordinated it with Autumn Rose, Harvest Gold from PTI as well as some Mossy Green and light pink that I just had in my stash.
 All in all a simple card; but I hope you like it.

A few challenges for today's card:

Make it Monday: Anything Goes
Use Your Stuff: Anything Goes
Our Craft Lounge: Flower Stamps
Stamp n Doodle: Circles or Ovals

Have a wonderful day everyone!
