Oh Happy Day {Fun Stampers Journey}

If I had to choose one single stamp from the new Spring Into Summer mini catalog from FSJ, it might just be the pineapple from the Summer Fun stamp set. I can't get enough of it! I love using it to stamp backgrounds, and for today's card,  I found inspiration from a bright and summery bag I saw in a store - it was Lilly Pulitzer's Flamenco pattern featuring PINK pineapples. I LOVE the combination with the bright blue of Lilly's print, but for today's card I went with my favorite color, Cool Pool! 

After stamping the pineapples in Watermelon Fusion ink, I used watercolor to quickly shade them in, and then flicked a little remaining paint over the cardstock with my paintbrush. A sentiment, and a thin strip of patterned paper added a nice pop of contrasting black.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a beautiful day! xoxo

I really love the black design "ribbon" on the left side. Adds a great look to the card and makes the rest more dramatic!
