You make me happy



I really love this set from the Spring Mini - it's called "You Make me Happy" and is a set of 8 stamps. The saying along the stems and bottom of the card is " you make the world special just by being in it". Perfect for so many occasions.
-
I used the designer double sided paper from the mini also - it's called "au chocolat" - all the designs feature chocolate chip and white - it's just yummy!!
-
This card was inspired by a card sketch I saw that featured a tag mounted on the front of the card. Instead of the tag I punched a hole with the SU Word Window punch and made a tag that inserts in the card. The tag is a perfect place to write your sentiment! This card is flat and doesn't open. I noticed that when I took the first picture I didn't have the tag lined up correctly... but I'm not taking another... it does line up better than shown!
-
Colors used were chocolate chip, old olive and more mustard. I also used gold eyelets and pretty green dotted organdy ribbon from Mikes.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think!

WOW! Chocolate chip and more mustard? (of course I love old olive and put it with everything!) Never would have thought of this color combo myself. This card is fabulous. Your artistic mind is great - What a gift.
