Everything Will Be Okay In The End - A Challenge

It seems like a white base for cards week for me this week - LOL! 
I just love the saying in this stamp set.  In fact, I think it's the reason I got this stamp set - Pursuit of Happiness.  I thought it was the perfect touch of snarkiness, don't you? 

Well, yesterday, I was visiting my wonderful friend Bev's blog, and she had done color challenge #140 with the ColourQ.  I decided to give it a whirl, too, and this card is the result.  Whatcha think? 

I used the new Daydream Medallions stamp set, the Floral Frames Framelits, along with card stock and ink colors of Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade.  I also made the card in 15 minutes.  There was some dressing up needed, so the Basic Pearls made a showing.  While I was making it, I just kept thinkin' that this is my "everything new" card (except those pearls).
My hubby really liked the card.  In fact, this card got more comments from him that the others this week.
Those framelits are so easy to use, too.  Have you tried them yet?  We used them in the last class I did, and everyone was amazed at how cool they made stuff look - easy, easy, easy.  I'm all about easy and getting my money's worth. 

I've been dealing with a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder and it really makes it so I can't sleep at night.  I wake up with the biggest dark circles under my eyes.  Good thing for makeup, eh?
Honestly, it's the stamping and the relief it gives me from stress that keeps me sane sometimes.  Everyone needs a hobby and stress reliever.  So -- go out there and relieve some stress today.  Stamp something - heck - stamp everything.  It will make you feel much, much better.  It's guaranteed.
