Happy Harvest Thoughts - Stampin' Up! Nature's Harvest

  I came across a new to me challenge last week and I was able to make a card to play along and luckily they are a 2 week challenge so I still have time to share before it closes!  The Alphabet Challenge uses the letters of the alphabet to inspire their challenge.  This time it's the letter 'H' and the challenge is to use the word 'happy' in your sentiment. 

 Even though I just shared the cards I mailed out to my team last month I still needed to make the ones to send out in July so I went with a general happy sentiment paired with the new Nature's Harvest bundle.  

My color inspiration is pulled right from the coordinating Harvest Meadow DSP even though I just used  small bits as part of the design.

  Soft Succulent is the color I used for the card base as well as the first layer which is stamped with the flowers in the same color ink and then embossed with the Bark embossing folder. 

  I found in my Very Vanilla scraps a few circles that were already cut so I stamped them with the flower stamp using Early Espresso and then colored them with my Blends markers (colors listed below). Behind the flowers I die cut one of the flower stalks and tucked it behind and then layered it all over the DSP strips.

  The sentiment from Many Messages is stamped in Soft Succulent, punched out and popped on dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
