Write it on your heart

I'm joining a couple of challenges today with one card.

I loved the inspiration photo for this Happy Days theme over at the Fusion Card Challenge blog, so bright and cheerful and much needed right now. We're having a beautiful weekend and it's making me think of balcony planters. I can't wait to choose the annuals for this year, but it's still a bit too early here. Planting is never recommended before May 24th the earliest.

I also loved the sketch over at CAS(E) this sketch! It gave me ideas, which are always welcome.

My card didn't turn out as bright as I had originally wanted it to be, but I do love it. That Most Incredible Stamping Tool EVER Invented has really brought down the frustration levels in my craft studio significantly! Used lots of NBUS things on this card, plus I can't believe that I made a one layer card that I actually like. That never happened before my MISTI. Something always went wrong before my card was finished and I would have to cover up something with something.
