Sunny Days, Happiness & Harmony!

Hi there! Just a super quick post, as we are filling the pool for the doggies. This will be Sophie's first time in the pool, so I want to get some pics.

I had the hardest time photographing this card! I think it took me longer to photo than it did to make the card! lol I'll be back with details later,
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, I'm Back! The Pups loved the pool, it cooled them off and they enjoyed splashing. For some reason, Tucker likes to dig in the pool, I'm not sure what he thinks he's going to find!!

This card's inspiration came from the latest Paper Creations, Summer 2009, page 66. I don't have either stamp set they used for their card but did find something in my "small collection" of stamps that fit the space :-) As well, I added green instead of gold for my 3rd colour choice. (I know, I know, white isn't a colour, but you know what I mean lol)

Recipe:
Stamp Set: Happy Harmony, SU! SAB set
Cardstock: Real Red, W. White, Gable Green
Ink: Black StazOn, Real Red, Green Galore ooh, some of my markers are in dire need of replacement, they have quite fuzzy tips so don't look too close at the leaves and small flowers!!
Accessories: Martha Stewart Border Punch (which, incidentaly, doesn't punch as smooth as the SU! ones), Half Back Pearls, Embossing Border, Green Polka Dot ribbon from my stash, Dazzling Diamonds
The half back pearls look larger than life in the picture, but trust me, they look nice in real life :-)

Absolutely gorgeous! I love these colors together and all the beautiful detail you put into this card! I love that MS Punch but you're right, it doesn't punch quite as cleanly as SU's!
