Happiness is Homegrown Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! Spring has finally arrived here! So, I am sharing my Happiness is Homegrown Card as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using Little Chick Emma

The Details of My Happiness is Homegrown Card

Don’t you just love Emma in her patchwork dress! So, sweet! I coloured this cutie with my Copic markers in Spring colours to match my papers.

For my card, I decided to use the Simple Stories paper since it had a farm theme, and I loved the soft colours! I had some scraps with chickens left over from a previous project, but not a lot. So, I created two squares and placed them in opposite corners on the blue/green polka dotted card base. Great way to use scraps!

Next, I added a die cut white fence to add some interest to the background.

The sentiment and banner were from the matching Simple Stories Bits & Pieces. The needlepoint look was perfect for Emma with her patchwork dress! An adhesive-backed pink heart on the banner mirrored the pinks in Emma’s dress.

Finally, for embellishments, I added more adhesive-backed hearts and flowers in addition to Star Dust Stickles to the hearts on Emma’s dress.
