Hey stamping friends!

Just popping in to share a card I created just for fun while watching Ustream this weekend.  I think I'm hooked on live streaming, especially crafty streams and animal streams.  I'm particularly fond of some Schnauzer puppies in Florida, a chimp and her baby in Africa and a crafty gentleman in Texas.  If you haven't visited a live stream, make sure you check it out.  It's great while working in the craft room.
This card was created using the Unity Stamp of the Week image called Hello Pretty by Angie Blom.  I love bottles and images that are colorable!  I paired it up with a teal card base that I stamped the sentiment repeatedly with Colorbox Blue Lagoon ink.
Adding the graph paper was an after thought as I was assembling the card.  I found that the card base was just too bold against the crisp white image.  I also thought a patterned paper would be too distracting and overpower the image.
Adding a little bit of bling and some Stickles gave it the pizzaz I was looking for and the little bit of green twine (Martha Stewart) just wrapped it all up into a finished piece.

Hope you enjoy this little piece of Happy!

See you around!

PS...I have a channel and will be streaming sometime soon.  Just need to get my camera set up away from my wiggly stamping table.  I'll keep you updated and will probably FB or tweet when I'm live.
