Sometimes the paper is so pretty that's all you need
This card is a perfect example of that. I love the colors in the Greenhouse Gala designer series paper. In fact sometimes I love the paper so much I hoard it and I don't use it. I must have gotten out this pack of paper a dozen times this month, looked at it, touched it...but I didn't dare cut it. I'm very happy I finally did. I wanted to give this paper center stage so I paired it with one of my favorite says from "Full of Life" stamp set, and embellished with a small flower and brad.
I started stamping in 2002. I went to my first workshop quite skeptical thinking I did not need another hobbby. Needless to say I fell in love and was instantly addicted to Stampin' Up! One of the things that I have loved about this hobby is that I'm spreading joy with a card or a gift. It took me several more years of stamping to become a demonstrator. Finally in 2006 I turned the hobby into a business and became a demonstrator and the joy of stamping grew. Not only was I making cards and gifts for friends and family but I began teaching others to do the same. It may sound a little silly but Stampin' UP! is my way of spreading a little more joy in this world. Sending a friend a card is like sending them a smile.
