Be Joyful

Welcome and Happy Friday.

I've been playing with some new stamps and this is what I came up with.
A simple, CAS card using Distress Oxide inks and a fun sentiment.

I began by inking up a piece of acetate and pressing it onto my white cardstock, keeping it in one corner of my card sort of creating a rainbow effect.
  When that was dry, I stamped the alphabet over the inked area to add interest.
Next, I placed the piece inside my Misti, stamped the sentiment and clear heat embossed it to help make it pop.  
Lastly, I stamped this wonderful 'Laugh' stamp from Impression Obsession by my friend Dina Kowal. Love the joyful feeling it portrays.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Have a great wknd.
