A Duo of Happy Trios!

I want to thank the ladies at CAS(E) this Sketch for the recognition of my card last week...what an honor...and such an unexpected and wonderful surprise!!!  This week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch is just like last week... when I saw it I IMMEDIATELY knew what I was going to do!!  Here's my card for the challenge, and the sketch...

I had gotten the My Favorite Things Happy Trio die set having "happy" in graduated sizes with the same font...PERFECT for this sketch...LITERALLY the sketch, right?!!   I used them with some of my favorite Doodlebug rainbow colored patterned paper and a cut up Simon sentiment to make a happy birthday card of rainbows.  I adhered 12...yes TWELVE 1/4" strips of the different colors of patterned papers to a thin piece of cardstock and die cut then layered the sentiments.  I adhered the layered die cuts to a white card...ahh...the white space...LOVE!!  Here's the remaining piece of my patterned paper strips after I got done die cutting the different sized "happys" from it...  

Here's a close up of the sentiments...
I have another one that I made BEFORE I made the one above...solid "happys"die cut from paint chips, adhered onto striped rainbow-like paper.  I thought I'd put it on this post, along with the challenge card...
I glossy accented the sentiments on this one..honesty time...I got glue on my fingers and then on my letters, so glossy accenting the sentiements was the only way  to fix the gluey mess that showed itself on the die cut sentiments...I like it...a not so bad mistake...
 All SUCH fun!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
