mojo monday/mojo486-happy day

I have used the Verve flower dies to create the felt flower and can use any combo of flower dies to recreate something similar. The happy day card is a journaling card and I have added a fun sentiment sticker too. The background is watercolored and I added twine and a gem. Be sure to check out the mojo makers blogs to see what they have created with this weeks sketch.
