My True Happiness is You!!!

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a glorious day. Our forecast for today was thunderstorms all day long, but so far they have completely missed us and we have had gorgeous skies above.
I've been on Facebook lately, and I have been hearing all this talk about a new paper company, Authentique Paper. So I went over to check out their Facebook page, and come to find out that this is where Miss Margie Romney-Aslett has gone. 
I had been very sad when I heard that The Girl's Paperie was not going to be any longer, as I was a huge fan. Now, come to find out that she is part of this new venture, my world has brightened up just a wee bit.
I found out that people were finding their new lines at Archivers, so I hopped in my car as soon as I could, and bought just about one of everything in the 3 lines that they had there. {The hubby may be a little shocked once he sees that bill come in!} As soon as I got home I had to play with my new toys!
This is the first card that I made:

I really liked the newsprint background paper, but for this card I thought that it needed just a little bit something else, so I inked up my Market Street Stamps Vintage Wallpaper background stamp with some Pixie Dust VersaMagic chalk ink. After it was stamped, but before the ink completely dried, I sprinkled clear embossing powder over it to give it some added texture.
Once the card was put together I took my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Silver Sugar and let a few clumps from the sprayer fall where they may, then misted over the tissue paper flower and tag.
I hope you like what I made, and next time you are in your LSS, check to see if they are carrying Authentique Paper. I think you just might fall in love with it as much as I have!!!
