Celebrating a Lovely Day

My card today feature an image and sentiment from the Artistic Outpost stamp set A Lovely Day. I just love the stamp of the girl. Today I used a version of the technique Out of the Box (actually Out of the Die) for the focal image. I colored the image using Copics.
For several other parts of the card I must thank some enablers. The frame is an intricate doily die cut from Cheery Lynn. My sister introduced my to Cheery Lynn. The frame was cut from blue metallic origami paper. The background paper is from Websters Pages. My friend Lisa and a co-DT member, Suzz,  introduced me to Websters Pages paper. It is definitely gorgeous paper. The pink flowers are flower soft.
This card is also being entered into two other challenges. Hels at Ink on my Fingers Sunday Challenge challenged us to use stash that makes us happy. Everything I used on this card comes from my favorite stash--paper, die, stamps, flower soft. I love it all. At Created by Hand the challenge is Flock/Flowers. There are definitely flowers. I cheated a little by using flower soft instead of flock. It uses the same technique and has a similar effect.
It was a lovely day today to make a Lovely Day card.
