Shabby and Happy!!

Woo-Hoo!! It's Wednesday, and time to make a card with Rox's sketch on SCS. Click HERE for today's sketch.

Do you have one of those friends, who no matter how bad of a day you're having, you always end up laughing with by the end of your conversation? Well, I made this card for a dear friend of mine who blesses me that way often, thus the "happy thoughts" sentiment.

I haven't used my Inque Boutique stamps for quite some time, so I thought I'd pull them out today. I used Shabby Chic (IB) for the medallions, and Everyday Whimsy (Wordsworth) for the sentiment.

I just got my new Stampin' Up Curly Label Punch, so of course I had to use it...*grin* Actually, this card is full of punches and diecuts...Nestabilities, Circle (SU), and Martha Stewarts border. The medallions are super dimensional.

The paper, well, I had my Frost dp (Memory Box) still out from yesterday, and thought it would go beautifully with these images. All the Cardstock is Prismatics. (Birchtone Dark, Herbal Garden Light and Dark, Vanilla Cream, Rose Dark)

I added Clear/Silver Rhinestone stickers (Kaisercraft) to the centers of the medallions, and ink distressed all the edges with Frayed Burlap and Walnut (Ranger Distress Inks).

I hope you're all having a blessed week!
Happy Stamping!!
Tosh
