Sending Happy Thoughts

I'm playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where anything goes and I'm using Karen Giron's great layout for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  I came home from work tonight and found some happy mail from SSS and couldn't wait to play!  The sentiment is from a newly released stamp set called Circle Sayings. I started with some Tim Holtz watercolor CS and pulled 2 different distress inks (Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed) from a couple of acrylic blocks to give a subtle variegated look to the base.  After drying it with a heat gun and die cutting the panel with a stitched rectangle die by Lil' Inker Designs, I then added texture by applying Liquitex light modeling paste with the Circle Dots stencil. The designer paper is from Doodlebug Design's "Sunkissed" 6x6 pad - also from SSS. This came together quickly and hopefully it will brighten someone's day when they get this card in their mailbox!
