Guest Designer at Raise the Bar

I was so excited to be picked in the Top Three at Raise the Bar last week and super happy to be asked to make a card as a Guest for them this week.
Their theme this week is "Color Me Happy" and they'd love to see a monochromatic card featuring your favorite color.

Obviously I couldn't just do one challenge :)

Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
Scrap Stamp and Doodle - Buttons, Bows and Bling
The Pink Elephant - Sketch
Totally Gorjuss - Charming
Kaboodle Doodles - Embossing
Stamp Something - Charms
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Flowers
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Happy Birthday
Creative Card Crew - Happy Birthday
Pixie Dust - Tag You're It

Card Recipe :
Image - Unwrapped Tilda
Paper - DCWV The Linen Closet
Flowers - Brides
Border Punch - Iron Gate by Martha Stewart
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug Border
Sentiment - K I Memories
Medium - Copic Markers

Inside is more dp and a faux stitched message mat.

Doesn't Tilda look cute? This was from a Christmas collection but I bought it knowing it would work for many other happy occasions.
I've loved making this card for Raise the Bar and I hope to see your monochromatic creations over there too!
