Happiness Abounds Slimline Card for Crafty Challenge Blog Hop

I love card challenges! Why? Because they force me to think “outside the box” and inspire me to create a card design I might not have thought about, otherwise. Today’s card is a Happiness Abounds Slimline Card. It was inspired by the sketch below. I used the Happiness Abounds Bundle and Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper to make the birthday card below.

The video below provides the instructions and demonstrates how to make this colorful Happiness Abounds Slimline Card. Further down in the post, are the measurements, supplies and written instructions. I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below.
