CTMH Happy Times Layout #1 for the Joyful Stars Blog Hop May 2016

Welcome to my entry in the Joyful Stars Blog Hop for May of 2016.  If you have arrived here from Debi's blog, you are on the right track!
Today I would like to share my first of three layouts that I have designed with Happy Times, a most amazing paper pack  and stamp set that Close To My Heart introduced for National Scrapbooking Month, and they will only be available until the end of this month, or until supplies run out.  Here is my layout...

To create the flowers, I stamped my flower with VersaMark ink, sprinkled on some Gold Embossing Powder, and used our CTMH Craft Heater to melt the powder until it was shiny.  I also fan folded half of a larger flower to create the little blue piece underneath the embossed flower. A Gold Bling Gem colored with a CTMH blue ShinHan Marker added the perfect touch. 
I hope you like my layout.  I will be back with my remaining two layouts soon, so be sure to check back with me!  Now, hop along to Krista's Crafty Corner, and I hope to have you visit me soon.
