What Makes You Happy?

Hi Everyone!

I recently bought the Hello Life stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue and one of the main reasons I wanted this set was for one of the sentiments - do more of what makes you happy - this is my mantra for 2015.  What makes you happy?  Crafting certainly is one of the things that makes me super happy.  I've been trying to find the perfect way to use this sentiment and I just couldn't wait any longer.

Here is my card:

I had some really great inspiration from a few challenges:

1. Paper Players

The Paper Players had a fun sketch this week and I decided to turn it on it's side - I hope that was ok!

2. Stampin' Celebration

The inspiration photo over at Stampin' Celebration was really nice and I knew right away that I wanted to use the beautiful heart paper out of the Stacked With Love DSP Stack from Stampin' Up!.

3. Fusion Card Challenge

This week I was inspired by the hearts in the inspiration picture from Fusion.  Of course, that gave me even more ammunition to use the gorgeous heart paper in my project.

I also want to take a moment to thank Julia over at Colour Me...! for choosing my project as one of the Honourable Mentions.  I really appreciate it!  You can see my card HERE.
