Bright Happiness

Good morning all, are we ready for another week? I hope that everyone had a good weekend. For today’s card I used some of the new items that are available for pre-order from the 2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalog. They call it the Summer Smooches Collection and it’s really neat. The card is a 3 x 3 note card which is great for attaching to a gift or tucking inside a little package. The base of the card is Whisper White. I added a piece of Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper for my background. I stamped two images from the Bright Blossoms Stamp Set, one in Real Red and the other in Lucky Limeade, and punched them out the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. It’s backed with a piece of Real Red punched out with the 1 3/4″ Scalloped Circle Punch. The greeting is from the Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set and is also stamped in Real Red and punched out with the Word Window Punch. I backed it with some more Real Red punched out with the Modern Label Punch. The tiny flowers are punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and the white circles were punched out with the Cupcake Builder Punch. I adhered them with some Mini Glue Dots and the other two are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the color combination, so bright and spring like. I hope you enjoyed today’s card and thank for dropping by. Have great day!
