Have A Happy Day!

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday!!

Here is my card (a day late!!) for yesterday's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG63, which is a GORGEOUS inspiration picture brought to us by the Trendsetter of the Week, Heather!

For my card today, I started with Saturday's Sketch Challenge at The Sweet Stop, SSS64! I knew when I saw the inspiration picture, that the new Summertime Project Pantry Kit was EXACTLY what I wanted to use! The colors in this patterned paper (Summertime by Echo Park Papers) were perfect for the inspiration!

I stamped the tree from one of my favorite There She Goes sets, Happy Day, three times. Once on Choice Snow White Cardstock and twice on the green gingham pattern of paper from the Summertime collection. I colored the tree trunk with Copic Markers and paper pieced the tree with the patterned paper. I then cut out some more leaves out of the patterned paper and popped a few up on Foam Tape for some dimension. The bird, also from Happy Day, was also stamped twice, colored with Copic Markers, cut out and popped up (the wing is also popped up more) on Foam Tape.

I stamped the sentiment, "Have a Happy Day" directly onto the patterned paper, and I added some grass in front of my tree using Die-Namics Fresh Cut Grass Die. The border is the Die-Namics Open Scallop Die and I cut it out of Choice Snow White Cardstock. I added some SU! Whisper White Ribbon and called it done!!

We would LOVE you to play along with this week's challenge!! One lucky particpant will even win a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the There She Goes Store! WOOT!
