Wishing You Sunny Days

I finished my last card for the Verve Release Week challenges with sketch number 5. As soon as I saw the layout, I knew I wanted to use the notebook paper image from the Blue Skies set — it was the perfect size. I added a couple of suns from the Let It Shine stamp set and embossed the background with Tim Holtz’s Rays embossing folder. Because I used white core textured card stock, I was able to highlight the dry embossed rays with a sanding block.

Thanks for stopping by!
