Wishing you joy...

I love the sentiment for this card. Experiencing joy covers all aspects of life, right? I'm thinking the inside sentiment could say, "...on your wedding day," "...in your new home," "...on the birth of your baby girl," "...today and always. Happy Birthday!" or many other phrases, depending on the occasion.

Since I'm not sure yet how I'll use this card--I've left the inside blank so I can determine that sentiment later.

I've used an unbranded die for my flower, inking all the petals (and veins in the leaves) and adding some gold Viva Décor dimension to the center, which is also a die-cut piece.

In this picture, you can see that gold Viva Décor medium a little better. I decided it needed something else, however, so I added a few dark brown dots with a brown pen. Too much? I'm not sure if I like it or not.

All in  all, though, I like the flower, but there's definitely room for improvement.

The sequins were some in my stash (eons old, since I inherited a jar of them from my mother's craft supply back in 1994!), and the embossing folder is by Cuttlebug.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Lovely card Cheryl. That flower is just gorgeous. I would not have thought of it, but that sentiment is great for any occasion.

Well, I think your flower is perfect Cheryl, it pops beautifully against that crisp, white, embossed background! Great blending of the colour getting paler towards the middle! A great idea for the sentiment too - I'd never really thought of 'wishing you joy' as a generic sentiment before - but I certainly will now! Have a great day! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx
