Happiness Comes...

Happy Thursday to you all! Jessica here with you today. I am coming to you today from Virginia. I am "down" here (it is South from my home) visiting my brother and his family. My little baby nephew is just ADORABLE!!!! I do miss my DH though...he had to stay home and work. Well, enough rambling, and on to my card for you today.
So I have been trying to experiment with different colors and sizes lately. I tend to use a lot of pinks and purples, so I am trying to stray from the norm a little. I also recently purchased some white ink...which is soooo fun if you have never used it! It just adds such a nice look to darker colored CS. As far as size, I made this card 4" x 4", instead of the usual 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I stamped the Happiness Comes image with white ink onto brown CS. I added some color using colored pencils, which also added a neat look...well at least I thought it I then layered the brown CS onto some brown and cream PP which I used a border punch around. This is the first time EVER I have been able to do border punched squares right! Last, I added a couple eyelets and threaded some brown ribbon though and added a bow.
Well that is it from me for this week. I hope you check back here often to see what our DT ladies have created, as well as stopping by their personal blogs.


  1. Cute, cute, cute. I love how your PP echoes the grid in the stamp image. Excellent job with the border punch!!
