LOC Happy Days - Card 1

Thank you for stopping by today - I always love to see you and thought I would show you one of the cards I am going to be teaching at my Card Design Class at the LSS next week.

I try and bring different styles of card each time, creating one Fancy Fold and then one quick and easy - that way of we get excited and carried away with the first one, the next one is easy to finish at home - so far we have done pretty well with time!

I have used Layers of Color art stamp sets - my LSS, Scrap n Stuff is the first store in Australia to be carrying Layers of Color and it is literally flying off the shelves - the classes are full and creativity flowing!

I have used the Flutterescent and Butterfly Collector art stamp sets, stamping them, cutting out and popping them up.

The word 'Happy' and 'day' comes from the Happy Wishes art stamp set, it has been stamped and cut out with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Labels 4 Nestibilitie.  This has been cut in half and had 'day' added separately.

This sentiment is also from the Flutterescent art stamp set and the butterfly from the Butterfly Collector.

The second card is the easy card and I will show you that tomorrow - I don't want to bore you with an UBER long post!  LOL! 

This card is for the following challenges:
Crafty Emma - Anything But Square
Our Creative Corner - Your Style
Secret Crafter - Embossing
Sugar Creek Hollow - Tic Tac Toe - Embossing, DieCut, Flowers
Bloggers Challenge - Things with Wings
