You Brighten My Day

Here's another card featuring the soon-to-be-released Verve Visual stamp set called Thoughtful Phrases. I started with a white card base of Papertrey Ink's stamper's select card stock. Next I layered on papers from Pink Martini's Pink Squirrel line. I was just recently introduced to these papers, and they are so vivid and fun. The top white layer is pearlized white by Paper Accents. The large brown and small blue/green flowers were cut out of Pink Martini paper, and I added a few primas as well.

The main panel was done by repeatedly stamping "you brighten my day" in different colors and then stamping the dotted border from the same set around one of the lines.

All the Goods:
Stamps: Thoughtful Phrases by Verve Visual
Ink: pink passion, cert celery, choc chip, always artichoke, brocade blue
Paper: Papertrey Ink white, Pink Squirrel by Pink Martini, Paper Accents' pearlized white
Accessories: star dust Stickles, primas, silver brads, May Arts ribbon, ticket corner punch

Bethany! Beautiful card! I love what you did with the stamps. Isn't the paper from Pink Martini Designs to die for? I am so sorry I haven't touched base with you regarding the BEAUTIFUL RAK you sent me. I got it last Thursday, the same day I was at the hospital with my MIL. I'm sure you know what's going on in my life right now. I'm so behind on my correspondance with friends. I just wanted to say THANK YOU and it made my day getting one of YOUR cards. Hugs, Amy
