So Happy...

I pulled out some of my Tinkled Pink paper & stamp set to make a bright, cheery card. This card is going in the Sweet Stop challenge this week. If you've never stopped by to check out their sketches, give them a look! They always have great patterns to create!

For the flowers, I simply cut them from a piece of patterned paper and curled the edges. You might not have a stamp that's just right for your card, but look to your paper. A lot of times there's a piece that you can use to create die-cuts. That's the joy of matching paper - a nicely balanced piece of artwork in the end. Not only with CTMH do you find this, but Basic Grey, Little Yellow Bicycle, and Cosmo Cricket on understaning the great concept of paper that can be used for more than just paper!
Now, as I tell you about this, one other thing comes to mind. Don't be a hoarder!! If you cut into a sheet of paper, you can buy another sheet!! Remember that and freely cut into the beautiful fabric of papers that you own!
