Happiness Is.........

Happiness is....... getting another card made with this beautiful background. I have also managed to use another of my NBUS - this wonderful die, now I want you to imagine thats me sitting in the evening sun reading and relaxing and thinking about mmmm nothing.

Another background done using the tissue watercolour background with just a little gold embossing
then die cut with a rounded stitched rectangle die.

I love how these colours worked out and even though there are a couple of white patches
it still looks ok.

Photos are all done outside as I am babysitting and don't have my usual photo set up but at least I remembered the camera this time. Finished the card off with the stamped sentiment that says it all really  'Happiness is......'

Happiness is
