I pulled out a couple of sets that I haven't stamped with for a while and got to work. First up, I masked off the when skies are gray sentiment from Rain or Shine and stamped just the You make me happy sentiment on barely banana. Then I did the reverse and stamped just the when skies are gray on a sliver of cardstock and rounded the corners for my tab. My gray skies panel is made by embossing the clouds folder on smoky slate then sponging with smoky slate ink and matting with basic gray. The basic grey vertical panel is embossed with a honeycomb folder and the soft sky card base is embossed with polka dots for tons of texture!
I matted the sentiment circle with a pinking circle die cut to make it a little sunshine and added some liquid pearl accents. The butterfly is from the So Fluttery set and I stamped it in Soft Sky and then die cut with the Flutterby Die. some bling and Pastel Sequin Mix finish things off.
That's all on the how to. I'm still having lots of ear pain and dizziness. Went to the doctor yesterday and apparently my middle ear infection spread to an outer ear infection as well. So antibiotic ear drops for me (and if you've ever intentionally poured liquid into your ears you know this is not a pleasant thing!) for the next week. Hope your weekend is looking more exciting than ear drops! LOL
