Happy!

Just heard that a friend is expecting baby number three! Made this card for her to say, "congratulations!" This is a CASE from a card found in the most recent Stampin' Up! catalog. I used a different stamp set and paper colors but the layout is the same.

I used the "rock and roll" technique for each flower. Just in case you haven't heard of this technique; you stamp a solid image in your first color and then "roll" the edges of the stamp in a second darker color. I love the effect! I then added the middle part of the flower and embossed in a dark brown. A brad smack dab in the middle finished off the flower. The "happy" sentiment is stamped in Always Artichoke (on top of Always Artichoke cardstock). Each flower has been mounted on a 1.5 x 1.5" square of Very Vanilla. A row of piercing runs underneath the flowers. A small piece of brown grosgrain was added to the side, with a small bit of double stitched ribbon was added on top.
Happy news, happy card!
