Thankful and Happy

A wonderful sentiment that is popular this time of year.  Mindy with you this afternoon with a card that asks a special question, Is it Happiness that makes us thankful or is it Thankfulness that makes us happy?  Something for you to ponder this day.

I started with a panel colored with the Ken Oliver Crafts Color Bursts from the brights set.  I usually color full 9" X 12" pages of watercolor paper when I play with the Color Bursts and then trim them down to card size so I will have them ready when I need a bright and beautiful background.  I then stamped my sentiment from the I am Thankful stamp set from Impression Obsession and die cut around it with the Labels Eighteen die set from Spellbinders.

I then stamped and added the Birds and Blooms stamp set by Heartfelt Creations.  After coloring and fussy cutting around the flowers I mounted them with Joy! Foam Pads Large to achieve the needed dimension for the front of my card.  I then added Allure Swirls in Silver Rhinestones for the center of the tiny flowers to add just that touch of bling.

I hope you have enjoyed this card, and will give the Color Bursts by Ken Oliver Crafts a try. They are so vibrant and fun to color your backgrounds.
