"Oh Happy Day"

Here's another quick card that's pretty easy to put together, but looks like it would take a lot more time.  This is due to SU's fabulous stamp sets with coordinating framelits which make this type of card a snap to put together.  I did do a little paper piecing by stamping one of the small starburst images twice, once in Crushed Curry and once in Bermuda Bay.  Then I cut out the word "celebrate" from the Bermuda Bay image and glued over top of the Crushed Curry image.   Paper piecing is one of my favorite techniques to use in paper crafting, and I think it adds quite a bit of "pop" to this card.
