Embrace Happiness

Happy Saturday! I was playing around with the With Sympathy set and this is a card I came up with. I stamped the swirl in Spring Moss and the flowers in Berry Sorbet and Plum Pudding. I painted the purple flowers with Iced Lavender Shimmerz. The butterfly was stamped in Beaux Arts Blue and I painted over it and the berry sorbet flowers with Angel Wings Shimmerz. Have you tried Shimmerz yet? That stuff is amazing, but so hard to photograph. When I take my pictures it seems that the shimmer either glares or doesn't show at all. It is so beautiful in real life. I wish I could capture the gentle sparkle of it in a photograph. The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages and is stamped in Plum Pudding. Just a simple card, that swirl was just begging me to ink it up. I love it.

I pray all of you have an especially blessed Easter weekend. I am off with my family to an Egg Hunt at our church. The kids are really excited. They get to hang out with their friends and eat candy and watch puppets. What more could a kid ask for?!?!

Stamps-With Sympathy, Mega Mixed Messages (Papertrey)

Hi Karen - this is such a pretty card - this set is on my list as a must-have along with the one you used on Thursday's post - I absolutely love that card, the background, the pearls, the colors, everything. Hope you had a nice Easter

Very pretty as usual. I have not used shimmerz yet. Are they like twinkling H20's?
