♥ Simon Says...Happy Mail ♥

Happy May 1st!! Love the month of to plant...pool to open...fresh air to breath! Love it all!!

Today starts a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! It is called "Happy Mail"! We want you to create a card "just because" to make someone happy!

The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Technique Tuesday this week! I chose to use 2 amazing stamp sets! Two Steppin and Simply You by Ali Edwards. Two Steppin is that gorgeous flower that you stamp in 2 steps, hence the name. And Simply You is a clear set with 15 different "happy" sentiments and mini images.

I stamped the flower outline in Black StazOn and then the full image of the flower in 2 different shades of pink. 1 darker and 1 lighter. I then did the same for the leaves.

The paper I used is from the 6x6 Hope Chest Paper Pack by Pink Paislee. I also used some White Opal Liquid Pearls and some pink Prima Crystal Hearts.

And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Have a sweet day!!

Absolutely amazing... it has a clean and simple feel to it, but still very much a 'Melissa' card, with it's soft, feminine touches. You're increible! :)
