Happy For You Quick and Easy Card!!

Hey Everyone!! Happy "Hump" day to you all!! I'm back with a quick and easy card I created for the Two Paper Divas Design Team.
I used the "Ghosting" technique and some fabulous stamp sets from the Two Paper Divas store.
I have seen this technique before on a few tutorials on the web, but have never tried it myself.
It took me a few tries at this to get everything just right.
Mainly I was experimenting with the ink pad colors and stamp placement.
I'm pleased with the final result and I hope you will be too.
Here's the pic for you to check out:

I used an A2 size Craft card stock base.
I cut another Craft card stock panel at 4 x 5 1/2" to stamp my florals on.
For the flowers, I used the "Pretty Posies" stamp set from the Two Paper Divas.
This is a great stamp set offering you three different sizes of flowers, which I used for this card.
I stamped each of the flowers in Staz On Cotton White ink.
For this technique to work you need to use an opaque white ink as your base.

I then used a few Stampin Up ink pads in Pink Passion and Marvelous Magenta to stamp my flowers on top of the white.
The result is a nice halo effect.
To fill in the empty spaces around the flowers , I stamped a flourish stamp.
First in Staz On and then in Old Olive from Stampin Up.
I added a few Recollections brads to the centers of the large and medium flowers.
For the smaller ones I opted for pearl centers.

For the sentiment, I used the "Happy Everything" stamp set from the Two Paper Divas.
I stamped it in the same Staz On ink as the flowers.
I then used a scallop punch to punch a decorative border on the panel.
I also added stitching lines, pearls and dots.
With everything complete, it was time to assemble my card.

I adhered a 1 x 5 1/2" strip of patterned paper to the card base.
The patterned paper came from a Recollections 8 x 8" "Garden Florals" paper pad.
Lastly, I attached the completed card panel to the card base using some foam tape.

And ta-da!! Card complete!

I hope you enjoyed this project for today!
