Wishing You Happiness

Happiness TodayThe idea for my card came from City Crafter’s Challenge this week to use this photo as a source of inspiration.  Although there are a couple other colors visible on this quilt, I’m going with the red, white and blue theme – after all the 4th of July is right around the corner!  Of course, I chose to make a quilt block but using a different pattern block to make the center panel.

Papers: PaperTrey Ink Polka Dot DP, Cardstock

Dies: Quilt Block – WPlus9 Design Studio Quilt 2, Sentiment Banner – Spellbinders

Embossing Folders: Star – The Paper Studio, Swiss Dots – Cuttlebug

Embellishment: Button Brads

Slowly but surely, I’m getting more comfortable making a card without a colored copic image – there is something to be said for letting the design of the card be the focal point!

Thanks so much for the visit!  Dee
