A Bright & Cheery Birthday

A month or so ago I bought the DCWV Lemon Flower stack.  Oh the papers are so pretty and I had been wanting to make something with so when the sketch challenge was posted on Fairytale Challenge blog I pulled out this stack of paper to make my card.

Here is the sketch that was to be followed, I like this sketch and think I will keep it for future use.

And here is the card I made using this sketch
At first I thought maybe the papers were to busy together but after inking the edges I think it made them stand out a bit more.  All papers are from the Lemon Flower stack with the exception of the scalloped circle.   This I made using my Imagine, I am a new Imagine owner so I am still playing around and learning.  I thought I would try to print on pearlescence paper to see how it turn out, and oh my is came out beautiful the pearl shows through the light yellow pattern print from the Country Carnival cartridge.   This make me even more excited about my Imagine.

Here is a close up of the circle, but you still can't see it too well.  The "happy birthday"
is a peel off sticker and the swirls are Dazzle stickers.  I love the Dazzles they add a nice embellishment to your projects.   They even have a monthly Premiere Dazzles club you can join and every month you get not yet released Dazzles, paper, and a project letter.  The flower is a Martha Stewart stick on.
I am very happy you decided to stop by today, I would love to hear what you have to say about my card and take a look around if you like what you see I would be thrilled to have you as a follower.
