Happiness is being with you


I am so glad my daughter is home and the card below...shouts my feelings. Happiness is being with you! She goes back on the road selling her tee shirts later in the week, so we are enjoying every day together. This is my DT piece for Retro Cafe Art  and it happens to qualify for the Dezinaworld  July Spot Prize for "Purple and Green".

I started with purple patterned paper and added tiny acrylic flowers to the corners. The lovely girls image is from Retro Cafe Art  "Best Friend XOXO" collage sheet that I added additional color with my paints. I put these beauties with some marblized paper in a  Retro Cafe Art ATC frame. I painted it white then purple shimmer paint. This is layered on paper eyelet trim that I rubbed with a purple ink pad. Also there is some organza ribbon, green sparkle pen details and purple Stickles dots. The sentiment is stamped then watercolored and put on patterned paper. I edged the entire card with a purple ink pad to complete this card.

Happiness is being with you dear friends.
take care, gerri.

  2. You have the gift of taking something which would have been quite plain and making it into a stunning little piece of art. Very nice, Gerri. I am so happy your daughter is home. It's a very special time for both of you. Enjoy. Hugs, Donna

  5. same to you, Gerri, but i guess you are happy now that your daughter is home :-) Another beautiful piece, and i esp. luv the color!! You said that you Started from patterned paper, like you started to work from OUTside toward inside.. I always think the focul point/main image/stamp first. Maybe i should try that for a change to see what kind of card i'll make..hmmm.. interesting! :-)
