a big dose of happy...

One can never have too much happy, right? This card made me pretty happy when I was putting it together.
Don't you just LOVE this stamp??? I'm crazy over it! Between the quote and Tammy Tutterow's gorgeous writing, I'm totally smitten. I want to stamp it on everything. 

It was easy to fussy cut around the stamped image, giving a little dimension as I layered it on top of the striped ribbon. 
The fluffy flower began with the darling Floweret Posies die and some felt. I wish I'd had some wonderful wool felt to use- and the crazy thing is I have a huge stack somewhere- but since I couldn't find it I had to use el-cheapo synthetic felt from the craft store. Surprise! It actually worked just fine.

I used two colors, cut multiple layers and snipped into the top flower so that it would kind of fringe itself around the stamens. With a quick whip-stitch to hold the entire thing together I was done in a flash. Boom! Perfect accent.

How is that for a big dose of happy? It worked for me!
