More retiring love

I have decided that I really need to give my retiring sets some love before they are gone for good. Today's featured set is Be Happy. I love this set, but somehow I never used it much.
For the workshop wow demo challenge, we were supposed to make a wow card to feature for the eScape promotion. Don't forget that we are supposed to eScape on June 25, one week from today! I don't have Circle of Friendship from the promotion, but we could substitute another circle stamp.
Hopefully, you can tell how fabulously glittery the flower is! Stampin' Up posted a video for demonstrators showing how great the Heat & Stick powder works with chipboard and glitter. Somehow, I didn't think of this before, so it's a good thing they told me! LOL I coated the chipboard with VersaMark and then poured on the H&S. I heated it just until the powder turned shiny and then poured on the glitter (purple of course!). Finally, I briefly heated it again to set the glitter down into the adhesive. Definitely a wow!
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Be Happy; Paper: Basic Gray textured, Soft Sky, Soft Sky Prints; Ink: Wild Wasabi, Basic Gray; Accessories: On Board Basics, heat & stick powder, fine cosmo glitter, 1 3/8" circle punch, Wild Wasabi ds grosgrain ribbon
Happy stamping!

I love this card. Glitter looks great! I am sad about losing this set, it has seen a lot of use with my clubs!
