Think Happy Thoughts

This week's CAS challenge is to use piercing and/or dots on your card. I decided to combine it with today's 365 Cards challenge to use 2 embellishments or less.

I used some of my new Papertrey cardstock and dp. They now sell their cardstock and polka dotted dp in variety packs, so you can play with all of their gorgeous colors without breaking into your piggybank.

Paper: SU Kraft, PTI Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, White, Bitty Dots Basics dp
Accessories: paper piercer, Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch, rub-ons (SU), ribbon (Dollar Tree)

Oh wow this is beautiful. I love the simplicity and elegance of it. Sometimes I think I go way too overboard on some of my cards!
