JAI #239 Colour Challenge - Choose Happiness

This week over at Just Add Ink Challenge Blog it is a colour challenge. Its a beautiful combo that includes one of the new in-colours, some neutrals and GOLD! I am still loving putting gold on everything so when I saw this combo I just had to put something together
And this is my card!
All the stamped elements on my card come from a stamp set called 'Choose Happiness'. I've had this set for a while now and have put a lot of thought into how I wanted to use this set. I loved it when I first got it and then once I got it home I thought 'How am I going to use this one'?
Let me just say when making this card I remembered how much I really don't like 'fussy' cutting everything! LOL! Sometimes though it really does call for everything to be hand cut!
Thanks for Looking!
Have Fun and Happy Stampin'

  1. The details on this are just lovely Rochelle! I particularly love how the sponged background pulls you into the bird and all those layered accents. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. Oh wow Rochelle this is really lovely! I love all the details you've added to your card and your fussy cutting is perfect for this card. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

  3. This is such a lovely card Rochelle! Beautiful use of the challenge colours and your soft shadow background is perfect. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

  4. Lovely card - I really like your sponged / brayered edges, they really draw me into the card. Chantell JAI

  5. This is beautiful, Rochelle. I especially love the gold-embossed border stamp on the vellum. Like you, I love this set, but feel a bit challenged when it comes to deciding how to use it! What you've done with it is gorgeous; great use of the challenge colours. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

  6. This is such a lovely card! The sponged background is fantastic in bringing the whole card alive and I love the gold accents. I can't work out if you have stamped gold onto vellum or if it is a ribbon in the layer under the stamped sentiment, but it's lovely either way.

    1. Thank You Jan! I gold embossed on the vellum. That's one of my favourite things to do at the moment, emboss on vellum! I love it!

  7. Congrats on being a winner on Just Add Ink this week. I can truly see why your card was chosen, so many great details. TFS!
