Avery Elle Thank You - Embellishments

Good morning! Yesterday was a good day to play - and I got a new camera lense, which made it SOOOO fun to take my pictures! I would love to know if you can tell a difference!

I made this to play along with the Avery Elle AEIHeartU Challenge #2 - Embellishments:

Also linking this up with the Avery Elle May Guest Designer Search.

I started off by stamping some flowers and leaves with 2 different stamps sets with Hero Arts ink. I went for a kind of "folk art" feel with the colors and mirror image. The 3 stamp sets I used were "Laurels" and "Petals and Stems."

I added the sentiment from "Oh Happy Day," on a strip raised with foam adhesive, then added a generous sprinkling of sequins from Winter Blend sequins. I used Avery Elle white cardstock for my base, then matted it with Mint to Be, and attached to my card base of Truffle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll be back a little later with my cards for Avocado Arts this month! Have a great morning!


  1. So pretty, Heather! I love the colors you chose for your bouquet, and those clear sequins are the best, aren't they? Thanks for joining the AE Challenge!

  2. Heather, this is gorgeous! I thought your photos were always great before, but I think the new lens blurs that background a bit more- which is what we all want, right! I am sure the beauty of the card would shine through with just a point and shoot! :) Thanks for joining us for the AE Challenge!

  3. So pretty!!! Love it!! It looks perfect!!

  4. Your color choices are so pretty and the sequins are the perfect touch!!
