You Make Me Happy - PPA216

What a beautiful summer we've been so fortunate to have!  Our weather's held for the past few weeks in the mid-20's giving us just the perfect summer.  

Today I'm starting off the week with a bit of a twist.  I created a card using the Paper Pals Art CAS sketch designed by Margaret Moody.  

While choosing my card stock and designer series paper, I decided to go with a Mossey Meadow print from the paper stack and use the paper colour for a monochromatic scheme.  

I made my card and I really liked it but then, and here's the twist, I decided to remake the card using the colour challenge from Just Add Ink, and I did it not once, but twice!  

Here's the Sketch and Colour Challenge:

Here Are My Cards:

For my Monochromatic card, I used a Whisper White card base with a layer of Mossey Meadow and then a second layer of Whisper White card stock.  I used 31/2" tags made with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch instead of panels for my card.  

I also used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create a panel measuring 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".  I stamped this with leaves from the the Blooming with Hope stamp set, before adding the "You Make Me Happy" tag from the Perfect Pennants stamp set.  This was cut out with the Banner's Framelits. 

I stamped  9 floral images from the Petite Petals stamp set and cut them out with the co-ordinating Petals punch and adhered them to the front and inside of the card.  Some basic rhinestones finished off the card. 

My monochromatic card for the Paper Pals Challenge/218.

Here is my card for the Just Add Ink colour challenge.  It features Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral and Mossey Meadow.
This is the third card I made, also using the Just Add Ink colour combo challenge.   I switched out the banner and the flower colours and flipped the two tags to change this card up a bit.  Also did the inside panel a bit different. 
Each of the cards has a slightly different set up for the panel in terms of the positioning of the border stamps and the flowers.

Here are the three cards together. 

Hope you enjoyed this challenge and will visit both Paper Pals and Just Add Ink to see all the other great cards by the designers and participants.

Penny, it looks like you've been having a heap of fun in your craft space! What a cute way to use tags; very creative. Just by switching around the colours, you've created two quite different cards for our challenge - and they're lovely. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

Thanks Kelly for your comment. I wasn't sure if the tags would work as layers but they seemed to.
