Sending Smiles, SIP15 & CTS141

Greetings, Stampers! Today at Stamp, Ink, Paper we have a color challenge for you: Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black. I love how the black makes these colors pop!

What to make, what to make... A constant dilemma, lol! I rifled through my stamp sets and dies, looking for something that has not seen any love yet, and decided to use my brand new Sending and Wishing stamp set and dies from Simon Says Stamp. Once that decision was made, I decided to pair it with some other Simon products, including some unused card stock from my monthly kits (which I love)!

For my layout, I fell in love with the layout at CAS(E) this sketch, though now I am busting to get a stamp set that has dotted circles. I went through all my stamps three times, but alas, nothing remotely similar. Yet another item on my wish list :) The challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to use a stamp.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Happy & Smile, Sending & Wishing, Flowers on my Mind (SSS)
Card Stock: White, Soft Blue, Black (from SSS card kits)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Daffodil Delight, Pool Party (SU)
Tools: Big Shot, Sending & Wishing Dies (SSS), 3/16" Corner Punch (SU)
Accessories: Fall Festival Sequins (SSS)

I hope to see you over at Stamp, Ink, Paper!

Inky hugs!

Hi Sandy, love this card. It is bright and perky and cheery and the black does't overtake the card.

Sandy, I love this beautiful take on this sketch, the sentiment looks so crisp and elegant and your flowers in the place of the circles are a fabulous idea.
