Sending You Sunshine

 
Good Morning! 
 
I am playing along in the Papertrey Ink Challenge, Create Along With Us.
 

 
I totally fell in love with Kay Miller's creation using Forget Me Nots.
 
 

Here is my interpretation:

 
I used a Spellbinders Fanciful Lattice die to create my card base, scored in half.  Perfect for a note card size.  Antique Linen and Calypso Coral inks.  Sentiment stamped in Black Licorice Hybrid ink.  I stamped off once for the flowers to give them a softer look.
 

 
Papertrey Ink Daydreamer and Simple Sunflower stamp and die sets used.  Frame was created by layering two Cross Stitched Rectangles by MFT.  Simon Says Sunshine die.   Iridescent sequins for accents.  It's kind of a sweet little note card.
 
Thanks for stopping by.....hope you have sunshine at your house!  We do and I will be in the gardens all day soaking it up!
 
Enjoy~~

  2. Wait...Wow, You used a spellbinder die as a base? This is fantastic and you have out done yourself. Love the flowers that frame the border die. The sentiment inside the frame just "pops" ;pve the bit of shaded color there too. I love it all.

I just purchased this die that you've used for the base, so I am thrilled to see how you've used it! It's perfectly stunning with the frame you've added along with the flowers and sentiment! You are so clever and creative, my friend! Oh, what a delight! Big hugs!
