Create Along With Us: March 2016

hello! I've got a really pretty card (well I think it's pretty...) to share with you today!

I made this one for this month's Create Along With Us Challenge for Papertrey Ink. 
I loved this card by Betsy Veldman:
 and I thought it would be fun to try something similar with the Happy Day die cut!

I started out by die cutting the Oh Happy Day & it's frame (it's all one big pretty piece!) out of white cardstock and then coloring it with Copic Markers. Next I cut a piece of Aqua Mist cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and sponged some Aqua Mist ink on the bottom of it. I die cut the Happy Day out of the Aqua Mist piece, to use the negative background pieces. I loaded up a white card base with scor-tape and then carefully adhered the Aqua Mist background and the colored Happy Day pieces to it, putting all of the pieces together like a puzzle. I finished the card off with a few enamel dots in the center of the flowers! I'm super pleased with how it turned out, although i think i might have had better results with a less strong adhesive, I had to wiggle the pieces around to make them all fit right and the scor-tape is definitely not very forgiving or ready to let go of the cardstock :)

I can hear my daughter waking up, apparently nap time is over for the day! Have a great day!
(I'm going for a 3-D ultrasound tomorrow morning and get to find out if I'm having a girl or a boy!!! I'm so excited!)
