Happiness is...

Finishing another DTGD Challenge!

These challenges are so much fun. They give you a starting point and then you just let your creativity take you the rest of the way. If you ever have a problem getting started on making something.....just check out a challenge. Splitcoast has TONS of challenges and layouts.

I think this card turned out really nice. Here's the sketch that was presented to make a this card. It's from cookiestamper at Splitcoaststampers.

card base - 5 1/2 x 5
1st layer - 5 1/4 x 4 3/4 (patterned paper)
main white panel - 3 7/8 x 4 1/8 with mat
top right piece - 2" square with mat
lower left piece - 2 1/4" square with mat

Feel free to make your square card base any size you want. Please note the center panel is slightly shifted to the left, leaving a wider margin on the right. It is not necessary to follow the measurements exactly or use as many layers/mats. The 2 center squares with the main images can also be any size.

Recipe: Everything I used on my card is from Stampin' Up! except for the brads and ribbon. The colors are Chocolate Chip, Old Olive & Very Vanilla. Stamp set used is Happy Harmony - retired. Images stamped with VersaMark and embossed with clear. Au Chocolat patterned paper - retired. Happy Stamping!
