Smile...and pretend it's Spring!

To do that, just don't look outside! I've been in "Spring mode" as far as my card making goes though. Working with some of my favorite SU! springy color combos and spring subjects - like todays card. I've had this Level 1 Hostess set - Reason to Smile, for a while now, but this is the first chance I got to use it.

The large butterfly image is fun to color using the poppin' pastels technique. I stamped on Shimmery White card stock so it looks real sparkly in real life! The flower border with this set is really cute too. I just stamped the strips of card stock with it's coordinating ink and faux stitched with my paper piercing template and white gel pen. The word "smile" was taken from the quote stamp from this set and embossed in white and cut out with my favorite new oval punches.
My review on the Reason to Smile set...two thumbs up!
