Timeless Tuesday ~ Happy!

 Howdy everyone!  Welcome to the Timeless Tuesday Challenge at Flourishes!

This week the ever talented Broni is challenging us to create a card or project that makes you "HAPPY" (FTTC196)!

For my card this week I decided to highlight the "Happy Holidays" greeting from the Naturally Merry stamp set and nothing makes me HAPPIER than creating Christmas cards...

Happy Holidays

I first die cut my tag using the Spellbinders' "Grommet Tags" die set using Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.  Then while my tag was still tucked in the die, I took some Ranger "Old Paper" Distress Ink and inked up the inner piece of the tag.  Then I used the same ink and stamped some of the mini snowflakes from the Flourishes "Warm Winter Wishes" stamp collection all over my tag.

Then I took some Flourishes Classic White Cardstock and cut out a piece of cardstock for my skates.  I used  the fabulous new Snow Day SVG Cut File and cut it out. Then I took my skates stamp from the Snow Day stamp collection and stamped the image using Memento "Black Tuxedo" Ink.

I coloured in my skates using the following Copics Collections; W0, W1 and W2 from the Warm Neutrals Collection, G11 from the Green Grass Collection, and G40 and G43 form the Pistachio Collection.        

Take a peek at what my fellow Timeless Tuesday designers have created for today's "happy" challenge…
