Hello Sunshine

Spring is slowly creeping in, advancing and retreating here, so I decided to make my own sunshine!


supplies: yellow and white card, Altenew Spring Showers cover die, MFT Gumdrop Green ink for leaves, blending tool, Winnie & Walter Hello cutaway,  Hero Arts Butter Bar ink for shading, Avery Elle (retired)  Simply Said Hello, gold pearls

I cut my cover die from white card, punched out all the parts, and then positioned it over my yellow card base.  The leaves were sponged with green ink and replaced into the design, and some flower punch-outs were also added back into the centers of the flowers.  What better sentiment than this one - I sponged the diecut with my favorite yellow ink, and added the tiny "sunshine" piece.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Oh Lin, this is all kinds of fabulousness. The ombre sentiment, and the little blooms you painstakingly placed in there spots. Oh and I forgot to mention I am happy to see those blue blooms back on your blog header.

I've been eyeing this pretty cover die, and you did a bang-up job of using it. Love the happy color scheme and that great big hello! Beautiful card.
