Happiness is...

Hello dear friends,          (veuillez dérouler l'écran pour le texte français)
I am having a quiet Saturday night at home, in my craftroom, listening to music, I guess this is what Happiness is...  Happiness is, also my participation at Magnolia-licious first color challenge, Pink and Yellow.  I have been thinking about this card all week, until I found this paper, I had no idea what I could create. Pink, no problem, I am a pink girl. But yellow is a color I am having problem connecting with, although I love yellow.. Then came a recipe book on cupcakes.  I love cupcakes, it is a pleasure for me to bake cupcakes, sit down with a cup of tea, and enjoy this delicacy! It inspired me, because it was full of images of yellow and pink icing!  This is the story I wanted to illustrate with my card. I chose Happy Tilda that I bought a while ago from Magnolia-licious, she is colored with Copics. I received the image ofthe cupcake from a friend who has this cute stamp, I colored it also with Copics, but in lieu of the icing, I used Liquid Pearl, in Petal pink, then  I added glitter and pearls. I cut the Magnolia  doily in a pink glitter cardstock. The lovely banner is makde with my Cricut Reminsce cartrige. The letters are from Quickutz alphabet Studio Skinny mini. The DP is from Creative Memories, Enchantement collection. Thank you for stopping by, and take time to enjoy what Happiness is for you this weekend.

Salut à vous chères amies,
J'ai passé un samedi tout à fait délicieux. Assise à ma table, travaillant sur cette participation au nouveau défi couleurs de Magnolia-licious, Rose et Jaune. Je crois bien que c'est ça le bonheur!  J'ai pensé à cette carte toute la semaine. Me placer en mode inspiration "rose", aucun problème, mais le "jaune" est une autre histoire, bien que j'aime cette couleur, je ne connecte pas autant. Pour me distraire, je suis allée à la bibliothèque et je suis revenue avec un livre de recettes de Cupcakes, dont les images
sont tellement belles qu'elles donnent l'eau à la bouche. C'est en voyant une de ces petits gâteaux décorés en rose et jaune que l'idée de ma carte m'est venue! J'ai trouvé le papier parfait, dans la collection Enchantement de Creative Memories. Par chance, j'avais une image d'un cupcake de Magnolia, reçu d'une amie qui a cette étampe. Qui de mieux que Happy Tilda pour m'accompagner dans ce projet? Je l'ai coloriée avec Copic, tout comme le gâteau, pour le glaçage, j'ai utilisé du Perfect Pearl, un peu de brillant et des perles. Le petit napperon est coupé avec la découpe Magnolia. La bannière est réalisée avec la Cricut et la cassette Reminisce. Les lettres sont de Quickutz, Studio mini. La fleur, les perles, les brillants sont de mon inventaire. J'espère que vous prendrez un moment pour savourer quelque chose que vous aimez particulièrement  cette fin de semaine, le bonheur c'est  ça...
Merci de venir me visiter.

I will enter my card in the following challenges:
