Wishing You Sunshine

I just love the spring sunshine!  We've had such beautiful days here lately.  Just the perfect temperature...not too cold, not too hot, just enjoyable!  I love letting the kids play outside!

Today's card is all about sunshine!  It is clean and simple which I enjoy.


LOVE that background!  It was made using PTI's new Plaid Impression Plate.  It is such a subtle way to add texture to the cardstock.


I "bowed" the sentiment strip just slightly to match the shape of an umbrella...just a fun little touch.  I used 1/16" pop dots on the main white piece, then used 1/8" pop dots on the edges of the sentiment strip and another 1/8" pop dot in the middle of the strip to allow it to curve just slightly and give it dimension.


Hopefully it will cheer someone up when they need a little bit of encouragement!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

  5. Very nice - it's in the style of Silke which I really admire. Sometimes it's hard to get a simple (and I mean that term in a good way, I love simple!) card to have such a wow look and you did it!
