Celebrate and Be Happy

Ah, Monday...back to the predictable routine.  The weekend went way too fast, as usual, but I was able to get crafty and that is always a good thing.  For inspiration I looked to the new Fusion Challenge blog!  What a great idea!  I chose to combine the sketch and the inspirational photo and made this:

True to my word, I finished this card and low and behold, there was a giant ink stain in the top right corner...really?  YES!  So, I trimmed it down and adhered it to my black card base.  Should I have admitted that?  Ah, well...I vote for transparency, so there you go.  I could not figure out a good way to adhere my glitter, so I opted for double sided tape.  Speaking of glitter, Katie, you did not see this...Don't tell the others, k?

I reached for my fav Mama Elephant set, Hello and added the the black heat embossed speech bubble with foam.  A really simple, colorful card!

Here is a look at the sketch and inspirational photo:
