I just think this card is so cute! I’ve seen quite a few similar designs and just love the feel of the card. It seems so happy. I sneaked in a little birdie and my new obsessions… trees and mushrooms. I am waiting on a new tree stamp set from Close to my Heart to arrive. I’m dying to play with it, but for now, I have to free hand my trees. But don’t get me wrong, I love my little drawn trees too. I am loving mushrooms right now!!!! I don’t have many options for mushrooms in my stash, but I’m sure that will change.
Enough of my ramblings, onto my inspirations and how-to. I got the sketch for this card from CPS and since it is using a saying, I’m submitting it to the current Caardvarks challenge as well. The little mushrooms and birdie were cut from a Die Cuts with a View patterned paper. I free handed the shape of the tree and ran the top through the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder. I sanded the tree top and grass to help give it some dimension. The tree and one of the mushrooms in the back are popped up with pop dots. I just think the saying goes so well with this card… how could you not have the best day ever when you have a tree, birdie and mushrooms!
Thanks for stopping by!
