Happy Everything - Operation Smile Blog Hop

Welcome to our Operation Smile Blog Hop! This month, 34 consultants are featuring Close To My Heart's "Happy Everything" stamp set. Not only is this a great stamp set, it helps out a great cause!  For every purchase of this stamp set, CTMH will donate $3 to Operation Smile. Since its founding in 1982, Operation Smile has performed over 220,000 surgical procedures to correct facial deformities in children.

If you have come here from Darlys Recker's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

The papers used on this card were leftover scraps from scrapbooking layouts that I have recently completed. They were already this size, and fit perfectly on the card front!  The sentiment and arrow were stamped on white daisy cardstock, then double matted and popped up on thin 3D foam tape.  The balloon used another scrap leftover from the Blossom paper packet and was topped off with an orange star from the Scaredy Cat Assortment.  The coral reef sequins and black shimmer trim added a little pizazz to the card!

 I recently saw a rainbow card similar to this one, but using different stamp sets. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to try it with this Operation Smile stamp set. I cannot remember where I saw the original design, but if anyone knows of it, please share as I'd love to give the designer credit. Rainbows are always a favorite of mine since they are so cheerful! The little star stamp is from the Doodled Designs stamp set
These cards only showcase a few of the stamps in the set.  There are several more sentiments as well as an adorable bee!
