Happy Everything...

It's a trifecta today- I managed to do a card for three different challenges today-  I don't play in as many challenges as I would like to, so I was pretty stoked when I finished!

A couple of these challenges are new to me, and one is new period!  I decided I needed to play along with MD's new A Blog Named Hero challenge, the second is for the Retro Sketches #6 challenge, and the last the Less is more Week 62 Color challenge- I am not even sure how I stumbled across this one, but I definitely love a less is more card!

For my card today, I embossed the white panel with the Spellbinders ES-001 So Trendy M-Bossabilities and popped it up on 3D Foam squares to mount it to the green base.  The green flower is actually the S5-050 Rose Creations middle sized leaf fanned out into a flower shape.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Happy Day Animals set.

I will have to say, it was a bit challenging to NOT add some bling or ribbon to this one!!

enjoy! Pin It Now!
