Convention Card
More than a bit retro...

Happiness Shared

Hi there

I have been taking a bit of a break for the last couple of weeks after the hectic preparations for and then attending the SU Convention.  I had a fabulous time and the title of my post coincidentally summarises the experience for me. This morning I was looking back at the photos I took of the incredibly inspiring projects that were on show.  Lots of fabulous new products and tools are also coming in the new Catalogues (yes there is more than one!) on 1 September.  I normally take a while to warm up to the new In Colours, but I'm really looking forward to them.

My card today uses two of my favourite In Colours that will be retiring shortly - Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz.  I have recently purchased the 'Happiness Shared' stamp set which has been around for ages and has been on my long term wish list. This is a lovely image to colour and this time I have chosen to use SU colour matched Copics.  The rest is pretty much as you see it.

This is lovely, Judy. I love the scalloped edge, the ribbon and twine together, and the partially-crimped panel. Lots of lovely details.

This is beautiful, Judy. I love the simple color combo, the pleated ribbon, touch of pearls, textured and patterned paper and pretty little scallop. Just wonderful!
