I make no secret that I love this stamp set right now, it's such a cute and quick set to work with producing great looking cards quickly and with limited supplies, just a few ink pads really. I think it's a great starter set if you haven't yet done a lot of stamping.
Also see these Top Tips for Happy Congratulations (and the Hardwood B/G stamp too) :-)
So, today's card is stamped blues; I had some retired Baja Breeze card and so this was my base but you could use Soft Sky for a similar look.
The sentiment I have used here is from Sweet Essentials but the Happy Congratulations set does come with two of it's own.
I stamped the strings across in Slate and added the paper lanterns in Baja Breeze, Night of Navy and Silver Encore Ink, the silver has a lovely shimmer to it, see...
I added the bow by stapling the ribbon to the card (using a mini staple) and then tying the bow around the staple, the bow covers the staple fine but I took this pic to share this technique with you ;-)
OK, that's me done for today, I'm off out later to visit F.I.L. but will be back tomorrow with more cardy goodness for you.
