H2H - Something to Smile About

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge!

The theme this week is "Something to Smile About". There are SO many possibilities with this theme! 

I decided to create a very bold and bright card with coloured flowers. If that isn't something that makes you smile, I'd be surprised! 

I started by creating my own glitter background using a glitter paste. Two coats had to be applied to cover the cardstock. That piece was then die cut using the Multi-Circle Window Thin Cut. I had already stamped and coloured my flowers and leaves and I selected patterned paper that coordinated with the colours I used on the flowers. Four patterns were placed behind the open circles in a random pattern. The flower cluster was placed to the left of the sentiment piece, overlapping the end of it. I brushed the floral cluster with the Clear, Lemonade and Mint Shimmer Brushes and also added some shimmer to the sentiment. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret the theme above. 
You have until the end of August to link up your project. 
We can't wait to see what you create!
