Be Happy

I just finished a quick card and need to post this then go wash the ink off of my hands....LOL!

I felt like a kid again, getting all messy and playing with stamps.  So fun!!!  This color combination was inspired by Color Combos Galore #197.  I absolutely love the color combos they come up with week to week.  This one turned out a lot better than I had anticipated.  The other ladies/members at CCG have some fabulous talent and their projects are definitely a must see!!!!  The idea to do more embossing came from Sweet Stamps #19.  I chose to stamp and emboss a flower pattern, because my card is a "pick me up / be happy" card and I think flowers have a way of doing that for most people.  The flower theme Card Challenge over at BoBunny was also part of this inspiration.  I believe that sums up the challenges and inspiration . . . so here is the card!  As always, I love reading your comments and welcome your honest criticism!!!

  • White card stock (base)
  • Pink and Cream (glittery) card stock (center)
  • be happy stamp (rubber stamp from $1 store)
  • flower stamps (3 different sizes - clear stamps) 
    • [psst....these are the same stamps that are part of my goodies in my giveaway that ends June 20th]
  • Red, Black and Pink Studio G and Ink It Up ink pads
  • Red Button
  • Black Floss Twine
  • Used sandpaper to distress all edges of papers
  • Swirls around be happy were hand drawn
