Hello, Diane with you today with what I am calling a happy card!
I think the colors are so bright and cheerful, it just has to make you happy!

I started my card with a stamped background using TH Distress Old Paper ink
on an Impression Obsession background stamp called Sunburst.
I wanted a somewhat muted background, so inked it lightly.
These are nice, rather large background stamps,  approx. 6 x 6, 
so I used the Mega Mount curved acrylic block for the stamp.

I die cut the gorgeous Anna Griffin Flourish Medallion
from Madarin Curious Metallic #111 card stock.

an 89# card stock perfect for using your alcohol markers on.

I popped up the image using Joy! Foam Pads Large.
I wanted a bit of "bling", so I die cut my sequins using
My Favorite Things Sequin die from Orange Iris Shimmer Sheetz.
I just love this die!! It is a wonderful investment along with the
Shimmer Sheetz, allowing you many, many color options 

Thank you for visiting with me today, and I hope you are inspired to make
a bright and "happy" card of your own.
