Happiness is Contagious!

Here's a card I made for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #96.

I used another of my new 'Tude images from Stamping Bella. I stamped Gratty'Tude with Memento Tuxedo Black onto white and coloured her with copics. I added a little shimmer to the flower centers with my red Spica glitter pen then I cut her out with circle Nestabilities and layered her onto a scallop circle of real red.

When I was assembling this card I realized that I probably should have used ivory instead of white because it would coordinate better with the patterned paper...oh well...next time! The white card base is 5 inches square. The bottom layer is blue bayou. The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket Early Bird and I stitched the three panels to some Prism Sunflowers Medium cardstock. There's a real mish mash of paper on this card! After everything was in place I decided to add some Poppy Bella Glitter Dots to the patterned paper...it already had red dots there anyway so why not make them dimensional and sparkly?!?

Then I had no place for the adorable sentiment that is included with Gratty'Tude so I decorated the inside a little with the same papers and more Bella Glitter Dots. Heck, by the time I finished with the front of the card it was already too heavy for standard mail so I went all out on the inside too! :)
Hopefully this card makes you as happy as it makes me!

Thanks for stopping by!
