Let Happiness Blossom in Your Heart

Hi everyone!
Today I have a card for you that uses the sketch over at The House That Stamps Built for What If Wednesday sketch challenge.  I have never done a sketch quite like this one and I was intrigued, so I gave it a try.

I used an American Art stamp, adding a Swarovski crystal to the center of the flower.  The image is stamped in Imperial Purple Versafine.  I added 3 purple Martha Stewart pearls to each of the triangles.  I double mounted the image using my Nesties.  The paisley paper is back from my scrapbooking days (2008 Paper Studio), while the triangles are the backside of a paper called Sunset Stained Glass, but I'm not sure who produced it.

I am also entering this in the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon - Sentimental You~sentiment as main focus
Waste Not Wednesday - use forgotten products (2008 dp)
Word Art Wednesday - Use an uplifting sentiment
PartyTime Tuesday - anything goes
Paper PlayTime - Sentiment w/ anything goes

Thanks for stopping by!
