Simple happiness


*sigh*. 
The snow depresses me. So I am posting a happy card to make up for it!

Don't you love this paper? It's an old piece of origami paper I bought in China a few years ago. The stamp is SU.


I stamped the sentiment twice in two different colors and cut out select words. I love the added affect this gives.
Come play along with us for this week's challenge at Simple Scrapping Crafts
Create a card using only ONE stamp. One.
I thought it would be hard but this beautiful paper inspired me!

Have a good Wednesday,
*mwah*

Wow, that is some gorgeous paper, and a beautiful quote to go along with it! I love the ribbon tab and sweet roses. Great tip on stamping the sentiment in two colors, too!
