Happy Happy

Happy Friday!
And I hope you're planning a wonderful, long Memorial Day weekend. As I was looking at this fun new Happy Happy Day greeting, I'm thinking what can I add? I guess one more, great BIG happy! And a happy hot pink color. The concept was easy..but executing this split design took a little planning since I was using dies to cut everything. I first die cut the main white panel, then determined where to add (and split) the greeting. 2 lines above & 2 below looked about right, so I took the die and moved it up on the panel & cut off the bottom. I placed the bottom section in the die & cut off the top, removing the middle section. Then I die cut the hot pink layer & removed the inside, leaving just a frame for the white layers. I added a strip of the pink at the bottom of the top section & at the top of the bottom section then added the die cut HAPPY in between. 
Before I attached to the card front, I stamped the greeting & added the Scroll Corner Tile images in the corners. I added just a hint of pink inside the scrolls & I used the Splatter Bg to stamp a strip behind the large Happy die cut.  

Here's a look at the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
