Have a Happy Day

 Happy Friday, peeps!  It's definitely feeling like fall here in SE Indian summer, just a plummet right into cool temps!  The Spot Challenge has some fun fall colors (including my high school's colors--maroon and gold!), and the Fusion Card Challenge has an interesting sketch:

I pulled out some Crumb Cake plaid DSP from the Plaid Tidings pack, and I already had the Celebrate Sunflowers set on my desk, so this is what transpired:

I created a border panel with Merry Merlot, Bumblebee and Crumb Cake cardstocks, giving each one a different edge, and I dry embossed the CC panel, giving it a little Bronze Brushed Cardstock strip.  I adhered it over some Merry Merlot sunflowers I stamped directly on to the DSP:

I used the retired Merry Christmas dies to cut a "Happy" from Bronze cardstock and used one of the first photopolymer sets that SU came out with, Endless Birthday Wishes, to stamp the sentiments:

I had "tested" a sunflower on a scrap of DSP, so I added that piece to the inside, along with a birthday greeting from So Sentimental:

Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

You worked your usual magic with those colors! I like the sunflowers stamped on the cute plaid paper. This is fabulous! Love seeing Cassidy's smiling face this morning!

What a great take on the Fusion Sketch! I love all of the detail in the banding where you combined the stamping/die cuts and embossing! So very pretty! Take care and have a great weekend!
