It's A Good Day

Yes, it has been a good day from the day of my surgery and continues still.  So when I created this card using the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #314 and the Fab Friday Challenge #94, I felt this sentiment in the Best Birds stamp set really says it all.

Card Base:  Dapper Denim card stock cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4".  Added a layer of Whisper White with the sentiment heat embossed using Versamark, Dapper Denim ink and Clear embossing powder.

Center Strip:  Peekaboo Peach layer was embossed using the Woodgrain embossing folder and matted with Dapper Denim.

Branch:  Stamped the branch from the Best Birds stamp set on Emerald Envy and cut out using the Birds and Blooms Thinlits.  Stamped the flowers from the same stamp set on Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo card stock.  Cut out using the same thinlits.  Flowers were attached to branch with Glue Dots.  Added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers.  Dimensionals were used to attach the branch to the card.

Finishing Touches:  2016-2018 In-Color Enamel Shapes were added and the tiny Pearls were added to the flower centers.

I never thought I'd be able to use all the colors in the Fab Friday challenge but I was very determined to do it.  Success!  My hubby asked why the stars and I said when you're feeling good it's like fireworks celebrating the day.  Yeah, corny I know but I'm feeling blessed each day.  Thanks for visiting.  Feel free to comment or ask questions about this card.
