Create your own embellishment!

The HappiChallenge this week is to create your own embellishment.  Starla wants to see those handmade flowers and buttons, etc.  Use a ribbon to make a flower, or use punches or whatever toys you have.  Diecutting machines count so break out your Silhouette, Cricut, or Big Shot!  Here's what I came up with:

The digi is Leighs Happy Everything Vase, and it can be found here, as can all of her other beautiful designs.  I colored it with Copic markers.  The card base is embossed and I added gems to brighten everything up.  The yellow "ribbon" was made with the Stampin Up! ribbon punch and the butterflies are from their Beautiful Wings embosslet.  I used some green glitter glue on the wings because butterflies should shine!  The image is on a shape cut from a Spellbinders Nestability and is popped up above the card.

The HappiChallenge is here.  Enter!  As always, you don't have to use one of Leigh's designs to win, but your entry will count twice if you do.  What a great deal!

Speaking of deals, when you shop at Leigh's store it's always Buy-3-get-1-FREE!  AND she's giving away a beautiful clock design with every purchase in July.  This is the clock:


It comes with the sentiment as well.  Isn't it lovely?  So, go buy stuff!  What are you waiting for?  =D
