Joy Clair New Release Hop Day 1

Happy Tuesday crafty friends!
Today is an exciting day! It is a new release blog hop for Joy Clair! Joy Clair is releasing two new sets today and two more tomorrow! Today's sets are Cup of Joy and Floral Joy!
Two super beautiful digital stamp sets. If you are hopping along, you should have come from Martha's blog. The complete hop line up is listed below. You won't want to miss it! Here is my project for today's hop.
Here is my finished card. It starts with an A2 top folding card base made with a dark teal cardstock.

I used images from the new set Floral Joy. I added some of the flowers from the set onto a couple of oval images. I splattered some teal and silver sparkle along with some sequins. To the center of the flower I added some flat back pearls.

Here's a closer look at the beautiful sentiment.

Here's a closer look at the flowers I added to the bottom. I printed out the digital mat and then colored my flowers in with my Copic markers and my colored pencils.

Here's a closer view to show the "stitching" on the oval mats.

Here is one last look at my card.
