Sunny Sunday Sketch

What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon - doing one of those things I love best! Stamping, of course! Got home and had to look at the Stamping 411 sketch. You know if I don't do that on Saturday, it's the first thing on Sunday afternoon that needs attention. Skip lunch, who cares! I gots to stamp! And stamp I did. When I first looked at the sketch, I figured I needed to make a house-type layer. Then I looked at the operator's samples and decided to just play around with some ideas instead. Lookie what happened...
Now this is a sunny Sunday card if I ever saw one! After praising God in church, this card carries on the theme. Even the sun, flowers, and butterfly praise Him also!
Stamps: Hello Again and FYI
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, More Mustard, Summer Sun, Old Olive, and Whisper White
Ink: Bashful Blue and Old Olive pads, Cameo Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Old Olive, and Garden Green markers
Accessories: Big Shot with SU! Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plate, Nesting Scallop Dies, Circle Scissor Plus, Word Window Punch, Sponge quarters, and Dimensionals
I don't know if you can tell, but the background on the white cardstock has Bashful Blue lightly sponged to give it some sky. And I really hope you can see the embossed details on the sun. It just looked too plain before that little addition. What a fun and happy card to make. And I hope it'll be a great encouragement when someone receives this in the mail! That makes all this card-making worthwhile - to be able to touch someone's life and make it a little brighter.
