August Card Chain Challenge Reveal - Happiness Blooms From Within


Hi, Friends......
I am here with my August CCC Card Reveal.  This card went to Dee in Kenya last month.  
The options last month were:

Colour Palette Option

(Exact matching is not required.)

Sketch Option

(Orient as desired.)

Theme Options: Movie Magic / The Sea / Friendship
Product / Technique Options: Vellum / Stamping
I chose the Color Palette, Friendship, and Stamping.  
Sadly, the beautiful pastel colors and silver embossing proved impossible to photograph!!!  Arrrgh..... The sentiment says:  Happiness Blooms from Within.


Supplies used include:
Versamark embossing ink
Silver embossing powder
Watercolor background
Spectrum Noir markers
Pretty Pink Posh - Sparkling Clear Mix sequins
