Best day ever!


I just think this card is so cute!  I’ve seen quite a few similar designs and just love the feel of the card.  It seems so happy.  I sneaked in a little birdie and my new obsessions… trees and mushrooms.  I am waiting on a new tree stamp set from Close to my Heart to arrive.  I’m dying  to play with it, but for now, I have to free hand my trees.  But don’t get me wrong, I love my little drawn trees too.  I am loving mushrooms right now!!!!  I don’t have many options for mushrooms in my stash, but I’m sure that will change.

Enough of my ramblings, onto my inspirations and how-to.  I got the sketch for this card from CPS and since it is using a saying, I’m submitting it to the current Caardvarks challenge as well.  The little mushrooms and birdie were cut from a Die Cuts with a View patterned paper.  I free handed the shape of the tree and ran the top through the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder.  I sanded the tree top and grass to help give it some dimension.  The tree and one of the mushrooms in the back are popped up with pop dots.  I just think the saying goes so well with this card… how could you not have the best day ever when you have a tree, birdie and mushrooms!

Thanks for stopping by!
