Happy Day...

It's Tuesday, and I haven't done a Tuesday Trigger in a long time! I was inspired by this very cool photo and project from Latisha Yoast to create this happy card. I also used another of the fabulous 2 Sketches 4 You sketches as a jumping off point, and I'm glad I did as I got to create these fun felt flowers.
To create my blooms, I die cut five scalloped circles out of felt, using one as the base. I then folded each of the remaining four and sewed them together, adding a bright yellow button at the center. I made two more flowers and attached them to embossed white card stock. With just a little ribbon and a sweet rub-on, I was all set for a happy little card!
