Happy Inspiration

This card was inspired by Marta's Pinterest board picture here. The yellow and white made me so happy!


I used a large background from Hero Arts, masking the bottom of the card. The sentiment is also from Hero's Sending Smiles clear set. Then I blinged it up just for fun.

My husband liked this card, but he thought it had bugs on it. Happy bugs. I don't see bugs, but at least he liked it.

-------------------

On a more serious note, I want to offer my prayers up for all affected by the earthquake off Japan. Between that and all the flooding and earthquake that affected New Zealand and Australia, it's been a bad time for that whole half of the world.  If any of you have specific prayer requests, please leave them in the comments.

Supplies
stamps: Hero Arts
ink: summer sun (SU)
paper: PTI white
accessories: stitched ribbon, rhinestones, scor-tape

  3. Beautiful. So fresh and clean. Love the sentiment. Is the ribbon wrapped around the card stock or cut to fit the front of the card?

  4. Hi, I just love your card and the cheerful yellow is just perfect considering the tragedy of the earthquake in Japan. I am so saddened by the recent event on Friday and those earlier this year as it has hit very close to home for us as a few family members were badly affected in the floods here in Brisbane. Mary
