Today's bright and HAPPY card was created especially for Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge using the design below. It was fun to try a new layout and use my neglected Stampin' Up! set ~ Think Happy Thoughts!
I've stamped the circle sentiment on whisper white cardstock with cameo coral ink and the flower in summer sun. A clear button is tied on top with coral colored embroidery thread. I used three sizes of circle punches: 1-1/4 (white), 1-3/8 (summmer sun) and 1-1/2" (cameo coral).
Do you recognize the designer paper I used for the background? It's from the Pink Flamingo series by Stampin' Up! I just had to have this paper and I've rarely used it. Does that sound familiar? ;) It coordinates perfectly with the cameo coral and summer sun cardstock. The yellow polka dot ribbon is one of the new In-colors - crushed curry.
It was such hectic day at work today that I wasn't feeling very creative tonight . . . but then I saw this sketch and all the fantastic cards created by the PPA Design Team, and I was inspired! That's one of the BEST things about these challenges!
Tomorrow is FRIDAY already and that is one HAPPY THOUGHT! :D I'm still working out the details of the "surprise" and will share it with you this weekend. I promise! ;)

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour.
