Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Today I have used the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set for my birthday card sentiments.

Today our challenge is a sketch challenge...
and let's take another look see, shall we?

I made this card for my sister who lives in the Adirondacks and currently has snow. I used Enjoy the Journey Designer Series Paper, which did all the work for me. The sentiment is from the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set. It's stamped/sponged in Garden Green ink, punched with the Banners Pick a Punch and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Since I wanted to give her a little hope that spring is just around the corner, I stamped a daffodil from the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set and colored it with Stampin' Blends. The sentiment is from Happiness Abounds.
