Oh Happy Day!

Here's a little somethin' I whipped up this morning based on the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. The paper is "For Always"-- I will be so sad to see it retire from the CTMH line on February 1. I am hoarding a little bit of it... I really love black and white with a pop of color.  I thought it would be just perfect as a background for this stamp.  The stamp is one I had from years ago, and happily, it is making an appearance in the new CTMH idea book!  I am so excited to see these quick-card stamps make a come back as a part of Jeannette's Archives! Another quick-card favorite will be featured in the new Idea Book as well, you'll have to check them out!

I colored the flowers with Copics and the leaves with ink pad and blender pen. The cardstock colors are White Daisy, Hollyhock and black. 

Here's the inspiration sketch:

Hope you have a "happy day!"


  1. I would never have thought to use this paper with this stamp! I love it!! You have such a great eye for card-making!!

  2. I agree with Miss Brenda, very eye-catching! How fun that you have that original stamp. I have the wooden Valentine cherub set. You are making me wnat to buy that stamp now!

  3. This is gorgeous, Kristine! I just might purchase this now :)
