Life is Good Card

This little card was able to accomplish three things for me at one time, so I am very happy with it! It qualifies for both Mojo Monday's latest sketch challenge and for the Cuttlebug Challenge's mellow yellow challenge this week. It completed its third purpose by being a birthday card for my mom. Happy Birthday, Mom!

For this card I used the Cricut Home Accents cartrdige for the pear cut. I also used my Cuttlebug's Swirls & Birds, and Swiss dots folders on the background and the leaves. The flowers I cut out after using some Stamin' Up! Stamps. I also used Stampin' Up! for the image inside the circle, which reads "Love, Laugh." The inside of the card, which I fogot to take photos of, says "Life is good." I used several Stampin' Up! Stamps for it as well. Then I had to break out my stickles for the seeds on the pear as well as the center of the flowers and around the inside of the circle. The pear, flowers and circle tag are popdotted, two or three times in some places. I also inked the edges on the paper and most of the embellies with cofee-colored ink.

Paper products used include Stampin' Up!, Cloud Nine Designs, and The Paper Studio; ribbon used was American Crafts. My mom loved the card and I hope you do too!!

Happy Scrapping!
