Happy Moments

When discussing this set with a customer recently, I mentioned I had a few simple ideas come to mind just while we were talking about. However, it's taken me a while to get around to acting on those ideas. Here's one very simple idea: stamp the image randomly in the background with VersaMark, then use the same image for the focal point of the card. I've coloured the main image with an aquapainter - picking up ink from the lids of my inkpads - and I have jazzed it up a little by using some ribbons but it is still a very simple card that takes no time to put together.

The Happy Moments stamp set is one of four available free as part of the Sale-A-Bration promotion. Sale-A-Bration, and the Summer mini catalogue, end on March 31st so you have less than a week to get them.

Wow that came up well. I really like the red ribbon on top of the pink too.
