A Happy Hello

I made this card for a lovely friend, as a "just because" card and I was pleased with the way it turned out.  Nothing too tricky or flashy here.  Just cheerful bright colours (dictated by the Washington Apple DSP) and the sweet "Hello Again" stamp from the Summer Mini.

I stamped the flower 3 times - once in Kiwi kiss (for the stem and leaf), once in Real Red (and I cut out the flower and adhered with a Dimensional), last in Pumkin Pie (cut out the middle and popped it on with a dimensional).  I like the "3D" effect popping up layers gives to an otherwise very simple card.   At the last minute I pierced the row above and below the flower using the Mat Pack.

Hope you are having a happy day too!
