Oh' Happy Day with Eastern Elegance

I may have said this already and if, so just pretend you're hearing it for the first time...  I think I have a new favorite stamp set.  It's the Starburst Sayings stamp set from the Celebrate the Everyday Occasions catalog. I especially love the Framelits Dies that coordinate with this set. It is a 6 piece stamp set with sayings for a few different occasions. the oh' Happy Day, just happens to be my favorite of the bunch. I was inspired by a card made by Jacque Williams. I changed the color combination and the dsp.
If you want to step up your card a bit you can add some texture to the base. This happened just by chance. My 7 year old wanted to "help," so he asked if he could run my white sheets through the Big Shot. Of course I said yes and I am so glad I did. He used the Decorative Dots Embossing folder and stuck 2 sheets of Whisper White card stock in at a time and they came out perfectly. He had so much fun doing this. I better keep my eye on my card stock and him or all of my card stock will mysteriously become dry embossed. Lol! I also added the little celebrate image from the Starburst stamp set just to add a little bit extra to my card.
Here is the same card with two different images as the focal point. I'm not sure which card I like best. Now, I just need to think of someone to send them to.
