Happy Everything

The inspiration for this card came from Tiffany's post HERE. I loved all her bright beautiful colors and don't you think her post would be a great post for a color challenge? Tanya got this wonderful new flower stamp, isn't it beautiful? When she came over yesterday I just had to give it a try.  My 2011 wish list just keeps growing and surprise there.

This was really a quick and simple card to do, letting the glossy accents dry took the longest of anything.
Stamped the flower image (CL496) on Bo Bunny powder blue paper colored with copics (B21, B23) cut it out and added some glossy accents for dimension. Stamped the leaf (CG148) on Bo Bunny mint green paper, cut out and added glossy accents.
Cut the white card stock and punched the border with a Martha Stewart border punch.  It is hard to see but on either side of the strip of blue paper I added some embossed lines with a scoreboard. I stamped the blue background flower (CL275) with salvia blue ink ( I stamped it first on scrap paper and then stamped it again without reinking).
The sentiment (LL165) was stamped and cutout with a Spellbinders nestability, edged with the lighter copic marker. Adhered the layers to a white card base and it was all done. This was quick and easy enough that you could make some in different colors and with different sentiments and give them in a set for a nice gift.

I was supposed to work today but census is a little lower and I was able to stay home and take call. So some crafting fun this morning and now it's time to study a little. I am hoping to take the Lactation Consultant exam this summer. And maybe if I get to stay home all day I might do a little house cleaning. I have my priorities in first :)

Have a great day and thanks for your visit.
