Happiness Always Card

Good Monday Morning Everyone,

Our county was in a flash flood warning last night here in Iowa as we had a major storm system pass through... we had water leaking in through our doors and windows  so fast - it was unbelievable... I don't know how many towels we used to soak everything up.... but everything is okay and today looks like its going to be a bright sunny day.

I just wanted to share a quick card that I made for Mackenzie's aunt, who has been suffering from MS. If you would like to make a card for her aunt, please head on to her site by clicking HERE. Her aunt Joan loves dark purple and flowers and so I made a card with my favorite SU! set Happy Harmony. The background is made up of 2 different purple cardstock and the stamped sentiment and flowers were embossed in bronze ink on white cardstock and layered onto purple cardstock, gold cardstock and the really pretty Golden Meadow Cardstock from ProvoCraft and was finished with a purple ribbon from Offray. I also had to add some stickles onto the dandelions for a little sparkle. I really love the purple/gold combination and feel inspired to use this combo more often. 
I am off to the post-office to mail this card - it always amazes me how happy I feel when I make a card for someone special - its almost like you are sending them a little beam of sunshine from your heart :)

Hope all of you are having a wonderful Monday,
Thank you so much for visiting :)

Ciao for now,

This is sooo pretty!! Just elegant. I don't like purple but you made me tolerate it!!

Glad your house is ok. We get flash flood warnings here too but our house sits on a little hill and so (so far) things have been ok. I wish the tornado would just go away tho :)

Have a great day, lady!
