Be Happy - It's Contagious!

I just love that saying...I should live by it a little more often!  This is one of the cards that I was able to create while BananaStamper had the kids.  I stared with this week's sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges and my CTMH Key to My Heart Papers...not even sure that it is current anymore, but that's okay.  The image is Gratty'tude from Stamping Bella, and thi sis the first time that I've inked her up, though I've had her for a long, long time.  Once I coloured her, I finished off her flowers by adding a little yellow stickles to the centers....which of course you can't see here but is super cute in person!  LOL!
I'm quite happy with the way this card turned out...and since the paper was already on my table you'll see a few more with these colours in the next week or so.  Sparkle has inspired me to start using what I have before I buy some new papers...we'll see how that goes.

I promised a quote from Eclipse today, so here it is (for those who don't know, this is Bella talking about one of the Quilleute men looking at his true love):

The way he stared at her! It was like a blind man seeing the sun for the first time. Like a collector finding an undiscovered Da Vinci, like a mother looking into the face of her newborn child.
