Hello Sunshine

Hi everyone! The other day I needed a break from all this dreary weather, so I decided to create a little sunshine of my own. This orange American Crafts ribbon called my name from the Archiver's store window and I just HAD to buy some. So I built the card around the ribbon. I love the way the card turned out, but just as I told Mark when I showed it to him, "This is SO NOT going to photograph well!" It's so much softer and dreamier in real life.

The banana background is embossed with the QuicKutz polka dot folder and the Apricot Appeal background is stamped with a pendant from the Accent Notes set and then the open flower from the Love's Flower set. The main panel is stamped with the Accent Notes frame and cut out with Nestabilities Labels 9. I colored in the fleurishes with an Apricot Appeal marker. The sentiment is also from Accent Notes and is punched with a 1.25" circle punch. To finish off I added some liquid pearls accents and stamped and cut out the little flower from Love's Flower and coated with Spiced Marigold Distress Stickles and a rhinestone.

My Toys:
Stamps: Accent Notes, Love's Flower (Verve)
Paper: Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal (SU!)
Ink: So Saffron, Apricot Appeal (SU!)
Accessories: Spiced Marigold Distress Stickles, Liquid Pearls (Ranger), Labels 9 (Nestabilities), Circle punches (SU!), Polka Dots embossing folder (QuicKutz), ribbon (American Crafts), Rhinestone

  21. Gorgeous! I love your creations. I have been following your blog for a long time--this is my first comment. Do you have any pull with Archivers to come to my state?? I had one 3 miles from my house in MN and now 0! I'm seriously jealous!
