I have been wanting to make a Mr. Smiley flower for a long time. I got these flowers as a bouquet at Hobby Lobby, so I could make pens in a flower pot. You know...the ones you see at banks, etc. I had some left over, so I pulled them apart to use on cards. I love how the flower frames Mr. Smiley from Today's Forecast at Molly Stamps.
In addition, I got some awesome paper from Paper Temptress. The piece I used is the orange sparkle paper that I embossed with the happy birthday cuttlebug folder. You can't see it in the picture, but this paper has a sparkle to it. Hence the name sparkle paper....LOL! I love it! I orange goes perfectly with the orange in the flower.
AND....I used my BIG BITE! This is only the second time I has used my big bite and I am so glad I got it. It puts gromlets on so easily. I know it is the holiday season, but I had to make this cheery card. I was inspired by Today's Forecast and the flower. This is what I ended up creating. I love starting from scratch and just piecing items together and until viola!
I have been taking pictures of the cards from a different angle, because I like the way it show you the 3-d look! The inside of the card reads, "smile...it's your day!"
