Joy card

I was invited to play along this week at A La Card Monkey and I did so happily.  I was a bit tight on time but thought I'd try something I don't usually do- popping pastels.  The challenge was a sketch + theme of "joy".

The time constraint meant that I didn't have a chance to mull it over much so I went a bit obvious on the "joy" portion of the challenge and that lead me into the colors and general look.

Stamps: (Silhouette Song Bird): Unity
