An Awesomely Artistic Happiness Chosen

Boy oh Boy, What a Day!!
Not only is the weather getting terribly hot
But my husband is in agony with another wayward Kidney Stone, and is on the cusp of having to go to Accident & Emergency!
He has had 2 previous admissions for renal stones, and still he doesn't drink enough to flush these little blighters through before they get too large!
So time at the doctors yesterday, today and he has a kidney scan booked for Monday to see where the stone has got stuck this time, bless him

So, I am re-using my nurse training to care for him wiht litres and litres of water, pain killers and sympathy as another bout of renal colic grips him
He is now dozing in from of the telly, so I am going to try and sneak into the workshop to have a play

And of course I have a lovely card that I made as part of My Craft Stash's Template Challenge
So out came the following:

Artistically Awesome Stamp Set
Chose Happiness Stamp Set
2015-2017 In Colour Cardstock & Classic Ink Pads
Very Vanilla Cardstock
Basic Rhinestones &
the new Metal Rimmed Pearls
Aren't they do die for, so elegant and so vintage, and so me! he he

And here is how I made the card
I began by making my A6 Card Base using Mint Macaron Cardstock
Next I trimmed a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock to size and randomly stamped this panel with the flower using Delightful Dijon ink, and the pollen splatter stamp in Watermelon Wonder
Next I trimmed a panel of Tip Top Taupe cardstock to a long, narrower strip and used the Burlap stamp and Tip Top Taupe ink to create a tone on tone effect.
I think this created quite a realistic burlap effect. What do you all think?

Now trim a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock 6 x 6 c,s square and randomly stamp with the pollen splatter stamp using Tip Top Taupe  & Mint Macaron inks.
Mat this onto a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock.
Make the topper using the Chose Happiness Stamp set.

Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock and Tip Top Taupe ink, Punch out the sentiment using the Label Bracket Punch and ink the edges with mint macaron ink and a sponge dauber
Apply a couple of Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse of the label
Next, using Tip Top Taupe ink, stamp the hardwood banner onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock, die cut using Banner Framelits, and sponge the wood grain with  Delightful Dijon ink.

Now for that dragonfly.
Stamp her onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Delightful Dijon cardstock and cut out using your Paper Snips,
Add 3 small Basic Rhinestones, and apply a Stampin Dimensional to the back of the Dragonfly
Attach to your card front.
Complete the card using three of those amazing metal rimmed pearls.
