Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day to all of those in the US.  No matter where you are or what country you live in, take a moment today to remember all of those who have fought and died to keep your country safe.

Ok, on to this week's challenge! This week at Happileigh Scrappin we want to see LOTS of embellishments! Buttons, bows, brads, charms, ribbons, name it!  

I used a new image from Leigh called Mushroom House.  It was colored with Copics, then Stickles were added to give some sparkle.  The background was created by using the Copics to add dots.  The ribbon is from Michaels.  Flower on the bottom left is from Prima.  The flower on the upper right was created by placing numerous pearls in a circle around a pink gem.  The "home sweet home" sentiment is from 7 Gypsies.

So now that you've seen my card, head on over to the Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge Blog to check out the creations by the other Happi Sisters.  Remember, you can use any image to enter our challenge but if you use a Happileigh Scrappin' image your card gets entered twice!  If you don't have any Happileigh Scrappin' images you can find some freebies here or go to the store here. There's still a sale going on, buy three get one free!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a fantastic day!

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Hey, girlie! Cute card. I love how you did the background. It goes perfectly with this image. On a different note, that's a great pic you chose to remind us of Memorial Day. Sad, but so touching at the same time.
