A Little Happiness

Hello folks, hope you're having a lovely weekend with some sunshine wherever you are. It's lovely and sunny here but rather cold due to very strong winds so at least my washing will dry!
I'm here today to share the first creation in an age which isn't DT stuff as when I saw the current challenge theme at Allsorts, Quick and Easy Does It, I challenged myself to try and do something I find rather difficult so although there was more thinking than the time it took to actually make the card, the stamping from start to finish took only 10 minutes including stamp cleaning - very unusual for me I can tell you!
Here it is and hope you like it:

All of the stamping was done directly on the card blank and I first used the sequin waste stamp (Carabelle Studio Etoiles, Taches et Background) to stamp the dotty design on each side with Mustard Seed Distress ink.
I next stamped on the main image (Artistic Outpost Happiness) with Archival black ink, then followed with the text in the same ink together with the tiny butterfly.
As a finishing touch, I stamped the splats from the Carabelle set with Worn Lipstick Distress ink.

Tada! Done!

Have a lovely Sunday.
Fliss xx

Made me smile Fliss and confirm we can allow the thinking time ! Lovely stamping and choice is colours.

Chilly here as well, in fact put the heating on again.
