A Happy Thing - Love Life Card

Good morning!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend.  Ours was actually pretty relaxing - not a lot going on apart from my crop on Sunday, my team Founders event on Friday, volleyball and a playdate.

This first card I'm shared with you today is a swap I received from Kathy House using the A Happy Thing stamp set that you can get for free right now with a minimum $60 order.  I LOVE it!  I loved it so much that I decided to use it in my Blend Well class last week.  I did have to make a few minor changes because I didn't have all the supplies to CASE it exactly as is.  Such a great card and even better because you can get the stamp set, the daffodil AND the Olive Blendabilities all for free with a qualifying order! Here's my version...
So the changes I made are minor ...
  1.  DSP - Kathy used the Painted Blooms dsp in the Occasions catalogue - I don't have that yet so I used the polka dot one from Flowerpot.
  2. Ribbon - Kathy used the white 5/8" satin ribbon - I didn't have any of that so I used the 5/8" organza and didn't have much so I didn't double up my not.  The organza is simply wrapped around the front and the ends adhered in the back and then the crushed curry SAB ribbon wrapped all the way around.
  3. The other change I made and this was just to simplify for a class was to stamp the image right on the cardstock instead of cutting out the whole image, we just cut the lemon.  Kathy actually created a cute little window using a circle punch and then had an embossed piece of white cardstock behind.  Super cute!  
I showed off Kathy's card as a stepped up version of my card in class and they loved it.  Thanks for the inspiration Kathy!

Hope you have a creative day!
