Happy Day!

One of the perks from going to convention the last couple of years has been a discount on select items from the catalog.  It's an even better perk when stamps that are on your wish list are included in that perk.  That is how I ended up with Happy Day and this is one of the first cards I made with it:

Colors: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Gold.  Stamps: Happy Day.  Big Shot: Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Circle Framelits, Circle #2 Originals.  Accessories: Modern Medley Designer Series Paper, Brushed Gold Cardstock, Rhinestone Jewel.
I just love the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper.  It is so elegant and refined.  And here I added just a touch of the Brushed Gold Cardstock to the circle layers to add a little more elegance.  One of the presenters at Convention told us that gold is very in right now.  I envisioned this as a wedding card, but it would work for nearly any occasion.

This is one of the cards offered at my August Stampin' Buffet this weekend.  All the projects were inspired by something I learned, a swap or a display board at convention.  I have added another day for this class, next Thursday, August 22.  If you couldn't come this weekend but want to come then, let me know by noon, next Tuesday.

The Modern Medley paper looks great paired with solid black. A lovely and elegant card.

You are so right, this is an elegant card. I think I see my wish list growing again. I need some of that DSP! Or the MDS download :)
