Happy Thoughts

Love this sentiment, from Clear and Simple Stamps Build a Flower.   Everyone needs happy thoughts and the recipient of this card could use a lift.

I needed a lot of happy thoughts during the years of taking care of my Mom and I haven't forgotten the folks who sent me (or my Mom) cards to lift our spirits.


Stamps:  Clear and Simple Stamps Build A Flower (sentiment) and Butterfly Garden.  Stampin Up Tape It.  
Ink:  Hero Arts Tide Pool and Stampin Up lilac marker (outlined the butterflies with the marker) and Ranger Archival Black
Cardstock:  Stampin Up Pool Party and Neenah Solar White
Other:  Gold Marker, Micron Black pen, adhesive, paper trimmer, President's Day so I had time to stamp

Beautiful card. It would most certainly touch a recipient's heart. Love the fonts used in the sentiment.

Ohmygoodness! Floaty is the right word, isn't it? I love how the dots both ground the butterflies and give the illusion of floating. Brilliant!!!!

Suzanne said...

LOVE the gold marker accents here, Joan!

This is just fabulous. Such a soothing design and color scheme, and I like the motion in the butterflies.

I am such a sucker for butterflies. Make them blue? PERFECTION.

Sending some happy thoughts to you, Joan! Your butterflies are beautiful with the touch of lilac outline. Love the dots and the colors, too.
