Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge: Pursuit of Happiness

Good evening friends!  What a fun weekend, we spent the weekend at lots of fun activities and were on the go and I also had a lot of fun playing with some of the great new catalog items (I placed my first new catalog order and can't wait for it to arrive).  Since the 2012-2013 Annual is still available through tomorrow I decided to highlight some of the retiring items for the last time for this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  This is a fabulously versatile sketch and will work for so many projects.  This card starts with a Pear Pizzaz cardbase (so excited that this color is returning to our color family).  Next I added a piece of Going Grey cardstock and then a piece of Twitterpatted DSP.  I added a coordinating DSP strip from the same package as well as some Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon.

The greeting is from the Pursuit of Happiness stamp set.  This set has some great greetings for many occasions.  I used Stampin' Write markers to color in the words and then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.  This piece was matted on a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock that was punched out with the 2 3/8" circle punch and then embossed with the Big Shot and the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.
This card is so bright and cheery, perfect!  I loved this challenge so much I'll definitely be saving it for future products.
Enjoy and have a great week!
