Hello Sunshine!

Saturday, May 3, 2014

I am cautiously optimistic that spring has not only made an appearance around these parts but she is here to stay.  It is, after all, May 3rd and up until yesterday the temperatures here were well below average.  But I think we've turned the corner so to celebrate I made this card using the sketch at As You See It and the colors from Color Throwdown.



I got some new stamps and this "hello" die recently so I was anxious to put them to use. I tried the whole layered die thing here by cutting out four layers of the "hello" and gluing them together to create some dimension. It looks pretty good in person!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Gorgeous Grunge (SU); So 80s, Hand Lettered Hello (WPlus9); Sketchy Cheveron Border (Impression Obsession)
Paper:  Ultra Smooth Pure White (Avery Elle); Harvest Gold (Papertrey Ink); Basic Black, Cool Caribbean (SU)
Ink:  Cool Caribbean, Cameo Coral (SU); Harvest Gold (Papertrey Ink); Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories:  Tag Me die (Reverse Confetti); Hand Lettered Hello die (WPlus9)
