How fun is this card? It’s so bright and cheery!

I needed a card for a friend who was needing a bit of cheering up and I hadn’t used this stamp set yet, so I pulled it out and started stamping – it came together so quickly!

I started with just a basic card sketch and then pulled a color combination from my Color Combination Library.

Colors 080821

After that, it was just a matter of stamping! By the way, you’ll notice that the sentiment is stamped on a separate piece of White cardstock. This is because I dropped a stamp there and had a boo-boo. I kinda like how it looks so I kept it but you can stamp it directly on the cardstock the bowls are stamped on if you want!
