Quick and Easy Road to Happiness

Here is a card that I made for my upcoming stamp camp next Tuesday.  To find out more about this class, check out my EVENTS CALENDAR.
 
This card is super quick and easy to make...and cute to boot!  I punched one long edge of a piece of Melon Mambo card stock with the Scallop Trim border punch (p. 183), and then put a piece of Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP (p. 28 Spring Catalog) on top.  I then wrapped a piece of Melon Mambo 1/2" Scallop Dots ribbon (p. 172) around the piece, and attached the ribbon ends to the back of it.  I then took another, smaller piece of the same ribbon, and tied it onto the left side of the first ribbon with a single knot.  I attached the whole thing to the bottom of the Marina Mist card base.
 
I inked the car stamp from the Road to Happiness stamp set (p. 37) with markers.  I inked the car with a Pacific Point marker and the lights with a Daffodil Marker.  I inked up the tires, bumper, grill, and seat with a Basic Gray marker.  After "huffing" onto the stamp to re-moisten the ink, I stamped it onto the bottom of a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I then stamped the flowers on top of the car, using a Stamp-A-Ma Jig (p. 7) for placement, with Basic Gray ink.  The greeting comes from the same stamp set, and I stamped it to the top, right corner of the Whisper White card stock.  I colored the flowers in using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, and Old Olive markers.  I then attached rhinestones from the Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack (p. 175) to the center of five flowers.  I attached it to a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock, and then attached the whole thing to the right-side of the card.  Like I said, quick and easy!
