Have a Happy Day!

Hi.  I wanted to share another card I made for a recent swap and my latest card class.

I fell in love with the new Close to My Heart stamp set called "True Love", which benefits CTMH's favorite charity, Operation Smile.  Isn't that little guy adorable?  I used a little piece of polka dotted paper from the Rustic Home Fundamentals paper pack and paired it with one of the new Rustic Home coordinating ribbons.  I also wanted to add a pop of color (like on my last card) so I used the new Color of the Year - "Sea Glass".

I paper pieced the two balloons, one with another piece from Rustic Home and the other is Sea Glass cardstock.  What you can't see in my photo is that I used our new Shimmer Pen on the Sea Glass balloon, so in person, it's fun and sparkly.  I also paper pieced his shirt.  I stamped it in Slate Grey and cut it out.

I also love this set because I love to color.  I used a few of my Shin-Han markers for his skin, hair and shorts.  Don't mind my coloring out of the lines, I made this card in the middle of the night and my eyes were a wee bit tired, lol.

Here's a closer look at the stamp set.  

Isn't this adorable?  I love it!  The little girl is so cute too.  So many possibilities.  This set is available for the life of this catalog, so thru July 2017.  It retails for $17.95 and CTMH donates $7 of that to Operation Smile.  Operation Smile is a non-profit organization which provides surgeries for children to repair cleft lips and palates.  Such a worthy cause.

As always, thank you for stopping by.  Please check back soon.

** I have entered my card in the "Show us your Sea Glass" challenge over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges. **
