Happy Happenings ~ Birthday Bouquet

Good Monday morning!  Today’s card is all about clean and simple as well as fast.  Woohoo!  I had leftover pieces from my Mother’s Day card in April (you can check out the original card here).  Although I had stamped, colored and cut out enough for two cards, there was still enough leftovers for four more cards.  I didn’t want to just recycle the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series paper so I went to work and made this clean and simple thank you card.  I am sheepish to say that I like this design as much if not more (just ever so slightly) then the original design.  Eek!  I did fit in a bit of shine with the Stitched Satin Ribbon!  [grin]

BASE:  It starts with Whisper White layered with Watermelon Wonder and Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.  Watermelon Wonder stitched satin ribbon was wrapped around layers before adhering to the base.  [TIP:  A Whisper White strip was placed under the ribbon so the white dots would not show through the ribbon.]

FOCAL POINT:  I wanted a simple thank you and I love this one from the Happy Happenings stamp set.  I stamped in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White and punched with a 1–3/4″ Circle then layered onto Mossy Meadow and Watermelon Wonder Circles from the new Layering Circles Framelits die set.  The Mossy Meadow and Watermelon Wonder circles were popped with Dimensionals to add that all important height.  Lol!

I hope you enjoy today’s clean and simple, as well as fast design.  Have a great Monday and happy stamping!
