Happiness always

That's the sentiment on today's card:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- backing paper from the lovely selection sent to me by Kay, which is still going strong and is still the first place I check for papers

- SU 'Certainly Celery' card stock for the main backing

- image is by LOTV from the 'Fairies' pre-coloured Art Pad, trimmed down with the corners punched using a notch punch (made by Woodware) and popped onto a piece of 'Certainly Celery' card stock. I bought this pad of images ages ago at Ally Pally and blow me, every one of these little particular cuties (there are three the same in a pad)  had a little grey smudge on from the printing process so I just added some little butterfly stickers. And of course some Glamour Dust :)

- the sentiment is a pre-loved one by SU, stamped using SU 'Pretty in Pink' and popped onto a snippet of 'Certainly Celery'

- the pink iridescent organza ribbon came from my ribbon box

Clever idea as a way to cover up the smudges. Beautiful card and no one the wiser. Hugs Mrs A.
p.s. It's too dark now (an me back is done in )to see the weeds so I left em piled up by the chicken house.

So very pretty! Love the way you covered the smudges. Quick thinking!

The green DP is really pretty with this image.

I have had the smudge problem before with precut patterned paper boxes of cards. Usually the smudge is on the inside front flap! requires careful gluing of the insert to hide
