Mama Said There'd Be Days Like This...

Ever have one of those days??? I have and sometimes they're too close together! lol! Someone else might need a pick-me-up that's having one of those days too. This card is perfect for them. The stamp set is called Days Like This and it's a super fun A Muse Studio set!
The base is lime green cardstock with a papaya layer, a sugar layer and a bubblegum tag. The cloud dies are edged with a sponge dauber with sky ink (great way to layer white on white by sponging an edge!) and the sugar layer is popped up over papaya and bubblegum polka dot organdy ribbon. The ice cream cone was stamped in memento cocoa ink and colored with lime green and papaya memento markers to look like melting ice cream. A little grey tombow marker makes the "ground" for the splat of the fallen ice cream cone.
Inside, the card says "mama said there'd be days like this...". I love that sentiment - so cute and so true! :)

It's got humor and it's cheery - the perfect thing for a friend who's having that kind of day and needs a hug with a fold. :)

The stamp set is on my website under the category "everyday celebrations" at www.amusestudio.com/seleise (consultant # 1379). The other supplies are under paper and ribbons and coloring tools.

Have a wonderfully creative day!
