Kaisercraft Happiness

Over at Diecut Divas it is anything goes all month. The amazing sponsor this month is Kaisercraft and after speaking to a friend who seemed down and flat I decided to make her a card, that is what they are there for right - to bring a little bit of happiness to someone's day. Here is what I created:

Card Tip:
When using your pattern paper it doesn't have to be perfectly matted and aligned on your card, make a feature of it by overlapping and placing it on an angle.

Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: 4 3/4" x 7" white card base.
Papers: Kaisercraft Take Note paper pad, Boho Dream Bohemian 12"x 12"
Dies: Mpress curved rectangle used on the focus piece.
Other: Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, Kaisercraft blue organza ribbon.
