Embrace Happiness

So I went "cruising" SplitCoastStampers today for some ideas. I came across user "markie's mom". I've seen her stuff before but today I decided I was ready to CASE one of her cards. Her name is Faith and you can find her blog HERE ("Stampin' with Markie's Mom")

THIS is the card that I saw that I thought I could use for inspiration.

I'm not completely pleased with my final outcome, but it's a start in a new direction. I love her layers and colors. I've been thinking (especially with the new colors in the new SU! Catalog) that I need to branch out from my browns and greens into brighter colors. As you can tell, that didn't happen in this card. I did however incorporate more layers and more details than I normally do. Please let me know what you think.

Colors are Close to Cocoa, Wild Wasabi, and pretty in pink (textured). The stamp sets are warm words, embrace life and brocade basics. All images copyright Stampin' Up!.

As always, thanks for looking!
