#Simple Stamping and Simply Happy Card!

Today's card is so pretty, and so simple to make!  Not a lot of fancy tools or techniques, just simple stamping and two die cut framelets.  I used the Vibrant Vases stamp set, (which is carrying over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog), and the Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper. Love how "happy" this paper is!
