You Make Me Happy

Good Wednesday morning.  Today's very clean and simple card is based on three challenges:  The Paper Players Challenge #195, CAS on Sunday Challenge #33, and One Layer Simplicity Challenge #5.

For the card base I chose Naturals White card stock.  The image from the Happy Watercolor stamp set was stamped using Black StazOn ink.  Using So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz ink pads and a Blender Pen, I colored in the flowers and stem.  I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get a good placement for the sentiment from the same stamp set.  Doing a one-layer card always seems like I'm leaving 
something off.  I ended up using the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the right edge of the card to add something extra to the card.  I then used the polka dot image from the stamp set, colored it with Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron and Calypso Coral markers and stamped it along the right inside edge so a little color would show through the punched edge.  See the photo below.  All in all, this was a very simple card to make.  I think the polka dots took longer to
do than coloring the flowers because I had to clean the stamp each time to change up the colors a little bit.  Thank you for checking out my blog.  I hope you get a chance to visit again.
