Paper craft project no. 499: Choose happy

It's not everyday that I find myself with a little bit of time to make cards just for the fun of it. Tonight, though, I resolved to give myself some me-time (aka do whatever I want except work!) after the Kat has gone to bed. The little one is deep in sleep and mommy is happily stamping away! (I have her on the Gynoii on my cell phone and Kindle Fire so I can watch her while I'm out in the living room.)

Here's one of the cards I made for a couple of challenges. Inspired by the current challenge at Less Is More (One Layer + Curves), I started by stamping the rose bloom (background + outline from Trendy Spring Blooms) then cut out a couple of curvy masks to cover the top and bottom part of my card base and leaving just a little bit of space in between for me to stamp the rest of my flowers in spring colors. Debated where to stamp the sentiment (Noteworthy 2) -- was going to stamp it on the bottom right but decided at the last minute to stamp it right beside the rose. Rounded off the left bottom corner and the card's done. (I resisted the urge to grunge up the top panel.)

I'm also linking my card to a couple more challenges: Craft Stamper's Take It Make It (Anything Stamping Goes) and Inkspirational #132 (Spring).
