Happy Happy Joy Joy

It's hard to believe a week has past since I last posted. Time seems to have gotten away from me again. Today I am sharing a card I made that qualifies for 3 challenges.
1. The sketch is from last weeks Mojo Monday Challenge #123

2. Colors and Ribbon are from the Current Embellish Magazine Challenge.

3. Lori's Papertrey Peeps Challenge which is to use buttons.

Here is the card I came up with.

I love circle cards so when I saw the Mojo sketch I knew that is what I wanted to start with. The colors I used are PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI Hibiscus Burst and SU Tempting Turquoise. I began by stamping the flowers from the PTI Blooming Button Bits set on Stampers Select White Cardstock using the new Hibiscus Burst Pigment ink After that I cut them out and attached them with dimensional. Next I added the stems using 1/4" Turquoise ribbon. After I was done with that I stamped the leaves from the PTI Beautiful Blooms set with Dark chocolate ink, cut them out then added them. The sentiment is from the Blooming Button Bits Set as well. I didn't have any Tempting Turquoise buttons so I made some using Tempting Turquoise card stock and liquid glass. To finish the card off I embossed the Tempting Turquoise and Hibiscus Burst background pieces with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and added some Faux stitching on the thin brown strip.
That's it for now. I hope to be back soon with more things to share. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great night!
