Hello Sunshine!

Hi everyone!  What a glorious Sunday it has been!   After church, there was nothing to do but take a nap and then play in my stamp room!!!  This card is for my sister-in-law's's in a couple of weeks, so I'm ahead for once...yay!!!  There were several challenges used for this card....the fun layout is credited to this week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast, the extremely talented Laura O'Donnell.....congrats, Laura!!  Her gallery was a blast to cruise.....I love her whimsical style, with lots of fun scenes (like I LOVE to make), plus tons of Clean and Simple (CAS) inspiration as well!  I chose this super cute card to re-create, using some chipboard flowers covered with Bo Bunny 'Hello Sunshine' designer paper and the 'Thank You Sentiments' set by Our Daily Bread designs.

I have also used the following challenges as well:
The Pile It On Challenge: Make your own embellishments;
Sugar Creek Hollow: Circles (flower centers and dew drops);
Card Positioning Systems: This week's sketch was so close to the card I just made, I had to submit to it!;
Dutch Dare: Summer Fun.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Thank You Sentiments';
Cardstock: Stampin Up Tangerine Tango and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: Bo Bunny 'Hello Sunshine';
Ink: Stampin Up Early Espresso (sponged edges), Island Indigo marker used to color one word of the sentiment at a time in order to stamp on a curve;
Accessories: Stampin Up chipboard flower (covered with designer paper), dew drops, sponge daubers, foam tape, exacto knife to cut curves in paper, paper piercer and template;
Size: 4 x 6-1/4.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hey, just a heads up, but stay tuned for not one, but two big sales at Our Daily Bread designs starting tomorrow!!!  Make sure to sign up for email notifications HERE so that you don't miss anything!!

God bless!
