AH 318 - Happiness Today with Two Cards

Welcome to this week's sketch at Atlantic Hearts!

There is a lot happening on the sketch this week - a sentiment within a frame, a border, two separate images and some embellishments. 

The first card I created for this sketch was one I wasn't particularly happy with so I created a second card. That original card is shown later in this post. 

I used the same sentiment for both cards but I wanted to use an image that could be seen both above the sentiment and in the lower corner as shown in the sketch. I ended up choosing a plaid paper and then I coloured some flowers that I embossed in silver. The green leaves add a nice touch to the overall card and takes away from the large amount of grey. That's why I went back after photographing the card the first time and added the silver embellishing thread, just to give it a little more emphasis to the flowers and help to draw the eye away from the grey. 

This is the original card that I created for this challenge... It works but it isn't my favourite. I brushed some of the flowers with a clear shimmer brush but that didn't show up in the photograph.
