Feel the Sun
I don’t mind saying that I’m very pleased with the card I made today, which features a lovely quote by Anthony J. D’Angelo:

Wherever you go,
no matter the weather,
always bring your own sunshine

I knew I wanted yellow and orange “sunshine” colors for this card and I found them in these patterns of Razzleberry Lemonade DSP. I sponged along the edges of the paper with Dusty Durango ink, and along the edge of the sentiment panel with Pumpkin Pie ink. The anni-VERVE-sary sketch called for a scalloped border on the right hand side, which I created with the flower from the Let It Shine set by stamping the image five times with Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card stock.

Thanks for stopping by!
