You Make Me Happy - Technostamper #299 and LNS challenge #241

This card is for the Technostamper challenge here and for the LNS challenge #241 which is to use dies/framelits

The base card is Calypso Coral layered with Whisper White then Watercolor Wonder DSP, the bottom right hand corner of which was folded up.
The focal image is a circle die cut with the Circle Framelits and stamped with the background stamp En Francais using Smoky Slate ink. The edge of the circle was sponged with Calypso Coral ink.
Then I created the flowers and die cut the leaves using the Sizzlet leaves die and Green Gumball card stock.
Here's how I made the flowers:  First I stamped 3 flowers on a scrap piece of Whisper white and coloured them with a Calypso Coral marker, outlining the flower with a Tangerine Tango marker.  The colours were blended using a blender pen.
Then I stamped 3 flowers with Versa Mark on Vellum cardstock and embossed them with white embossing powder.  These flowers were cut out and adhered to the coloured flowers using tombo glue.  This flower unit was then cut out.  First I placed the leaves & stem on the circle and then applied the flowers, using dimensionals on 2 of them.

The sentiment was die cut using the Spothecary Accents framelits and the edges sponged with Calypso coral.  Three banners were stamped using Banner Blast (SAB) stamp set and the following colours:  Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Gumball Green - and then cut out and attached to the bottom of this die cut.

This sentiment framelit was attached to the card at the lower left side of the circle.
