Happiness Is Like Perfume ...



This great quote, along with the perfume bottle image, comes from the new Puttin' On the Glitz set by My Favorite Things Presents. I used this week's MFT sketch for my layout. The weekly sketch challenges, as well as the weekly My Favorite Challenges, are always posted on Thursdays in the MFT Forum on SCS. You have a week to enter, and then the winner for each challenge is announced the following week. As always, all are welcome and encouraged to play along!

[Updated: A question was asked about the Top Note die and the layering. I hand-trimmed the ivory mat around the Top Note die. The sentiment panel is cut and embossed with one of the Deckle Edge Rectangle Nestabilities. Hope that helps!]

Thanks for visiting!



Stamps: Puttin' On the Glitz (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Papertrey Vintage Cream, Basic Grey Porcelain
Ink: Ranger Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress

Hi Amy,
I love your blog and watch it like a hawk!! This card is really beautiful. I'm wondering if you can tell me what you layered the top note die with? Is that one of the Nestabilities label dies? You do beautiful work and thank you so much for sharing!
