The Time To Be Happy

At long last I get to use one of the Stampin' Up images that Jan sent to me a while ago! The Stampin' Up challenge this week is a sketch:

I liked the sentiment and thought that the card needs to be bright and cheerful too! The backing paper is from Funky Daze with the panels coming from my stash - I honestly don't know where I got the stripy one from but it must have been a download.

I've inked all the edges and then rounded the panels. I forgot to tie the ribbon around them before I stuck them down, so had to cut tiny slits to feed the ribbon through! Doh! Will teach me to concentrate instead of watching Yes Minister!

I cut the quote out, lightly inked the edges and then layered it onto some red card - it didn't look right just as a whole circle, hence why I cut it out.

Thanks Jan!
