Paper Players Sketch Challenge: Happy Day

Good afternoon!  I'm a little later posting so I hope I wasn't keeping you in suspense.  Today I'm sharing a fun card using lots of new items for The Paper Players Sketch challenge this week.  I've been busy working on lots of swaps for my upcoming annual convention but I had to break away to play along with this challenge.  This card uses the new Happy Day stamp set and as soon as I saw the shape of the sentiment part of this sketch I knew I had to use the flourish from this stamp set along with the Labels Collection Framelits.

The cardbase is Strawberry Slush and I added a layer of Island Indigo and Modern Medley DSP for the main panel.  The main stamped panel is Very Vanilla cardstock and the text is stamped in Island Indigo ink and the flourish in Strawberry Slush.  I also added a piece of Coastal Cabana 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Ribbon.  The medallions are stamped with the same stamp set and I just punched the centers out with the 7/8" scallop circle punch and 1 3/8" circle punch.  The circle layer is matted on a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock that was punched with the 1 3/4" scallop circle punch.  I used dimensionals to attached both the circle elements so they pop off the cardfront. 
This is my first time using this color combination and I have to say, WOW, I really like it and the DSP so so fabulous! 
I hope you enjoy and have a great day,
Pin It!
