You Make Me Happy, FMS156

This stamp set makes me happy! It's called Hello Love and is a hostess set which I am inking up for the first time today. Love it!

I was immediately inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches by Narelle. I had to give it a 180 degree flip in order to keep the sun up in the sky. I couldn't find a color challenge for what I had in mind, so I found this combo on my trusty Color Coach:  Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Pool Party.

Everything but the circle was cut out by hand. The sun was heat embossed. The arrow and bird were stamped onto white, then the bird again on Pool Party. The tiny little beak was colored with a marker. I stamped the clouds in Pool Party also, cut them out, then decided I liked them better in white and flipped it over.
