Another BIG smile

Here is another smiling flower card made with the Be Happy set. You know I did not like this set at all, that is -- until I started making these flowers. Now I love it. I CASEd this layout from the caddy (page 123). See it really is an ideas book.


I do not know whether you can tell, but the dot above the I is a small pearl. I purchased these pearls at Michael's. They are from K&Company, from the Wedding line. The pearls are half pearls, and they already have the adhesive on them. There are 5 different sizes, and 6 of each size for a total of 30 pearls in the package. I think they were $1.99, but I used my 40% off coupon. (I could not find anything else, and I HAD to use my coupon) I do love them, but I would not get them at full price -- I know I am cheap.

This is one of those cards that looks great IRL, but not so good in pictures. Hope you all like it.

Stamps: Be Happy, sentiment (LSS) Ink: Rose Red, Bashful Blue Paper: Certainly Celery, Whisper White, So Saffron, Cutie Pie DP Extras: Dimensionals, Slot and Tag corner punches, Celery Ribbon

TOTALLY cute! I on the other hand, loved that set and never bought it. The little pearl is perfect...your Michaels excursion sounds like something I'd do (I'm way too cheap not to use the coupon!)

I love this card! I am loving these flowers you are making with those stamps. I have this stamp set, but it is still a virgin set. I am going to have to use it now! Love the pearl, and your creativity with your "just because" (yep, I've got that stamp too) tag element...genius!

It looks beautiful in the picture so in real life it must be drop dead gorgeous :) I love how you layered the "happy" flower. It's a great card and thanks for sharing it.

Have a great day

I think this looks great in the picture - so it must be just fabulous IRL. That pearl dotting the eye is too cute!

Wonderful card. Thanks for letting me know about the half pearls; didn't know you could get them at Michael's, and yes, I also am always looking for a way to use that coupon. Thanks for sharing.
