Wishing you a Day of Joy.....

Some days I wish someone would wish me a Day of Joy!  So this morning I'm sharing a card I made for a friend...We all need Joy in our lives.

I love violets...well I love all flowers, but this stamp had not seen ink in several years and I decided to bring it out again.  This is part of my plan to use what I have and let me tell you people there is quite a bit stashed away.  Out of sight, out of mind!  I colored these with Prismacolor pencils and then used a cotton ball and Distress Ink to highlight in yellow.  My sentiment is from Flourishes Stamps.  It just seemed to fit perfectly on my card.  I cut an extra die cut and trimmed it for the lace and then used the cotton ball on it too.   Some pretty Prima paper and it is ready to go in the mail to my friend! 

I know this is short and sweet, but my card is sort of short and sweet.  No frills kinda card, but I wanted it to be easy to mail.  Have a wonderful day and try to take some time to be creative!

Supplies:
Hampton Art Stamps - Violets
Prismacolor Pencils
Flourishes Stamps
Spellbinders Dies: Romantic Rectangles and Small Labels
Ranger Distress Inks
Prima Paper
