Sending happy thoughts

 Hi there!

A happy card for today ! 

Rainbows and dots... a combination that makes me smile. Hope it brings a smile to your face too !

The curve on Jacquie's sketch made me think of a smile, so I thought it was perfect for a card with a happy vibe!
I did the stenciling, stamped the sentiment and called it finish... but just before I took the pictures I realized that the card feels incomplete. I then searched for a tiny outline flower stamp, started stamping,  added the iridescent rhinestones and viola ! Now it felt complete. You know that moment when you start fiddling with a card after it's supposed to be finished can be either a huge success or a complete failure. 

In this case I think it was successful :)

Your stenciled dots add so much fun to your card. I've been contemplating using a new pencil eraser to stamp some dots to create a background pattern. You've inspired me to definitely give that a try.
