Happy Tomorrows

Hey peeps, are you ready for another sneak peek of one of the new sets? Today's card features one of my favorite sentiments from the Wonderful Wishes set. This one says, Wishing You a Lifetime of Happy Tomorrows. The sentiments in this set were purposely designed to be petite. They are perfect for working with ATC sized (2.5" x 3.5") cards and also fit well in some of the smaller punches, like the Stampin Up oval punches and several of the Marvy Extra Jumbo punches. They also all fit inside the three frames included in the set.

For this card, I started out making an ATC, but couldn't stop myself and ended up making it into a 4.25" square card. This is a perfect layout for easily turning any ATC into a card. The bird frame stamp and the swirlies in the corner come from an Autumn Leaves set I picked up at Michael's a few weeks ago. The sentiment is from Verve Visual's Wonderful Wishes, releasing November 10. All images are stamped in Palette Noir and then I colored highlights with my new Spica glitter pens. The charm is from a jewelry charm set I got for a $1 at Wal-Mart and attached with a brad from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts.

To turn it into a card, I simple added two Celery photo corner punches in opposite corners behind the ATC. I attached this to a black square embossed with my Cuttlebug Textile folder and the matted on a Pretty in Pink 4.25" square card base. For the final touch I added a bow of organdy pink ribbon. There you have it. Easy, breezy, beautiful! :)
