Happy Moments

I did a second card using the Create with Connie and Julie Sketch Challenge for this week that I thought I'd share it with you, too.  It was the original one I made, but after seeing several of the designers using the same stamp set, Happy Moments, I decided to do something else at the last minute…you can see that in my last post.

 

For this one I used a base of Melon Mambo cardstock, then layered Bermuda Bay cardstock that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  I used the Welcome Neighbor Designer Paper from Sale-A-Bration and cut it into three 1/2 inch strips and adhered them vertically, then wrapped two strips of Crushed Curry Polka Dot Ribbon horizontally around to the back to secure.

 

For the focal piece, I stamped the Floral Bouquet from Happy Moments in Basic Brown Ink on Whisper White, then colored with Watercolor Crayons and my AquaPainter (I haven't used them in AGES!)  I added some Crystal Effects to each of the blossoms to make them shine.  I punched with the 1 3/8 circle punch, then adhered it to a Scallop Circle punched from Melon Mambo.  On each of the scallops, I placed a tiny rhinestone sticker from Eggcellent Egg Kit!  I love how it sparkles!  Finally, I stamped thank you from Happy Moments in Basic Brown and punched with the 3/4 circle punch, the the 1" punched circle from Crushed Curry!  Fun card!

 

We are getting SLAMMED once again with snow, expecting 8-10 inches!  What is it this year?  I'm glad my card puts me in mind of SPRING!

Hi Connie!
I love love love this card!!! It is so my colors and I am wild for anything polka dot. :0)
I live out in Plain City and we got hit pretty bad with the snow too. I think I will follow your lead and start on some spring cards.
Take care, stay warm and have fun Stamping!
