Shelly's Images Challenge

Holy Smokes ... 
Thursday again and time for another challenge at Shelly's Images!

Today's challenge is:
"C'mon, Let's get HAPPY"
Use something that makes you HAPPY!

Today's FEATURED image is 'Carousel' and can be purchased at a REDUCED PRICE ... TODAY ONLY!  So be sure to click on the linked name under the image to go directly to the store location and get YOURS today!

Here is what I've created for today's challenge:
What a fun image to color and create with!  Something that has been making me 'HAPPY' lately (in my crafting world that is) ... is making paper flowers.  In case you hadn't noticed, there have been FLOWERS on a lot of my latest creations!  LOL!  So here we go again! 
The stripes & polka dot papers I have used are from the My Mind's Eye 'Lime Twist' 6x6 paper pack.  The flower panels were die cut using the Tim Holtz Floral Die and various scraps from this same paper pack.  I have added a little 'Berrylicious' Colorbox chalk ink to the ends & edges ... as well as conditioned them using the PunchBunch flower making kit tools (see below for info).  The leaves were created using a Marianne die (LR0156) also purchased at Joan's Gardens.  I have used Prismacolor markers to color my image and popped it up with Pop Dots.

A few qualifying challenges are:
Incy Wincy Designs - Spots and Dots
Tammy's Scrapin' Corner - Punches and Die Cuts
The Crazy Challenge - For a young one
Crafting for all Seasons - Handmade Flowers
Crafts and Me - Punches and Die Cuts

 I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at Shelly's Images and share with us what makes YOU HAPPY!!  You'll want to be sure to check out the fabulously inspiring creations made by my team mates!  See ya there!
