Happiness Always

Hi friends! Well I have to confess, I LOVE square card layouts!!! Here's another cutie from the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge and my take on the sketch! My color inspiration was from Stacey's Curtain Call to use: Going Gray, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, and Very Vanilla! Here's another confession: Going Gray is probably the least used Stampin' Up! color I use! I'm totally drawn to Basic Gray since it's dark - but I really enjoyed using the lighter Going Gray with the rich colors of the More Mustard and dark Chocolate Chip!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • My card base was cut from Going Gray card stock to 5-1/4" x 10-1/2", then scored and folded at 5-1/4". My fold is at the top so that I could wrap my ribbon around the card! The Pink Elephant blog posted a challenge to use ribbon, and I used the Stampin' Up! Basic Gray Taffeta on mine!
  • Did you notice those super cute NEW Brads in the corner of my card!?! They are the Chocolate Chip 1/4" Sending Love Epoxy Brads! There's 16 brads total per container; 8 each of 2 designs! I used the Chocolate Chip & Vanilla flower ones on mine, but there's also stripes too!
  • The cute swirly DSP paper is a FREEBIE in the SAB brochure! It's from the Welcome Neighbor DSP pad! Contains {72} 6" x 6" sheets total: 3 each of 24 double-sided designs!
  • The flowers in the center circles is from the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set (111672) on page 97 of the SU Idea Book & Catalog! I stamped them in Chocolate Chip ink on the Very Vanilla card stock.
  • My 'Happiness Always' sentiment is another FREEBIE from the SAB brochure! It's from the Whimsical Words (118386) stamp set on page 8 of the brochure! You can get this FREE stamp set with a $50 order and in either the Wood Mount {W} or the Clear Mount {C}. You have a choice!!
