Happiness Is…

Happiness Is...

For me, happiness is making, sending and receiving cards! I’m also always very happy when I can combine a few challenges, like the sketch from StampTV (stvsketchms1) and the color combination from SCS (CC273). Betty mentioned she pulled her colors from BasicGrey’s Cappella collection and I happened to have this collection sitting right there on my stamping table when I got started on this card.

I had been playing around with my new Martha Stewart Daisy punches and the frame I had punched was just the right size for the square in Melissa’s layout. Yes, I do try and stay very close to the original sketches for these challenges. My ruler is my best friend!

Thanks for stopping by!
