A Little Sunshine

Hello sweet friends!  Can you believe this weather?  One day it's beautiful, sunny, and 60 degrees, and the next it's rainy and dreary with temperatures plummeting to below zero with the wind chill. Well...yesterday was so dismal, I decided to create a little sunshine!

The background was made with a stencil and some modeling paste.  After the rays were dry, some Daffodil Delight ink was sponged on them.  The borders, from the newly released set Borders and Backgrounds, were white embossed on different colors of card stock and die cut with the Borders and Background Dies to make a rainbow.  Because I was trying to make a happy card, the flowers from the Happy Place stamp set were colored with Copic Markers in rainbow colors.  A Clear Wink of Stella marker was used to make the sun rays and the flowers really shimmer.

A sunny bow, a banner sentiment, and some rhinestone stickers were added to finish the card.

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has been busy preparing for Heirloom's Allentown Rubber Stamp and Paper Arts Festival this weekend, so if you are in the area, be sure to stop in and say hello!  We'd love to meet you!

Thanks so much for stopping in for a visit!  Be a blessing to someone today and add a little sunshine to their life!

Oh, and one more thing---We just added a bunch of our exclusive dies to our 50% off sale---CHECK IT OUT!!! They're sure to sell out FAST

Hugs,
Cathy

I live in Central America, and the exact same thing happened with the weather... Yesterday temperatures were so high, it was almost unbearable and today is rainy and cooler. LOL.

This card is a cutie. Love all the little details! Thanks for sharing.

Love this card--it IS like a ray of sunshine in the midst of this winter! I do agree about the weather. Even though, here in East Texas, we haven't had it as bad as other parts of the country, it has been even more changeable this winter than usual. Anyway, thanks for sharing this!
