C'mon get happy ...

This week the talented gals at The Paper Players are hosting a musical challenge. I had to play along with this one and knew exactly which stamp set I was going to use.  Today's card is about having fun.  Not pretty, just a colorful and get happy card.  You have to able to appreciate the Partridge Family to enjoy this card.


Stamps:  Happy Together
Paper:  Sahara Sand, Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, White
Ink:  Black, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Pacific Point, Concord Crush, Old Olive, Peach Parfait, Regal Rose
Accessories:  CB diamond plate embossing folder, Spellbinders ribbon banner, sponge daubers, rhinestones, dimensionals
All products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.

The sentiment was computer generated.  I tried to make a "scene" for the Partridges.  I sponged different colors of ink onto the white cardstock and then stamped the birds.  I then restamped the image with color on scrap paper and cut out just the bodies and glued those on top of the black images.  Like I've said before, I am NOT a good snipper.  Hoping some practice will make me better.

The whole time I was putting this card together, I was singing C'mon get happy ... had it playing on my iPad while looking at pictures of that colorful bus.

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,
Pam~

Oh my, Pam...this is too fun. Now, my head is swirling with sounds of that song. Love your little birdies and the happy colors you've used.
O.K., I'm trying to 'get happy'...just a little early in the day and I haven't had my Diet Dr. Pepper yet. I'll get there.:-)

The Partridge Family was WAY better than the Brady Bunch. I'm mean David Cassidy... REALLY? Yes! This is so clever, love the theme, the colors and I think you did a great job 'snipping'! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week!

Love the colors that you used. Makes me missed Brillian Blue and Yo Yo Yellow (retired SU colors). Loved the Partridge Family.
