Happy, Happy Flowers

Isn't this a happy card? I started stamping Gina K's flowers in Ruby Red and Old Olive and then chose a paper from Basic Grey Cupcake to match, I loved these thin earthy stripes and pulled out that pumpkin color from the print with these SU! buttons. It was just looking so fresh and cheerful I decided to draw on two little smiles under the "eyeholes" before attaching them with glue dots, hee! I see Joanne doing a ribbon treatment like this a lot off the side of the card with the ends tied off with hemp or thread instead of knotting the ribbon, and I love how perfect it looks here with those beautiful stamped leaves. I adhered my mat at an angle to give it more energy and stamped "friends" from "Say it with Flowers" to go with this this sweet little pair. (The "Tropical Flowers" set has no greetings in it, "Say it with Flowers" is a perfect set to complement it with it's all occasion greetings and floral quotes!) All done, yeah!! I love how fast this one came together.

Are you as busy as I am right now?? Eek!!! Have a great day! My tip sheet comes out tomorrow along with a little card peek, you're gonna love it!
