Sending You Sunshine!

Can you believe it is Friday AND the sun is actually shining here? Today is supposed to feel like spring........finally! On top of that goodness I have two cards to share with you today! I's a rare thing here on the ole' blog.....don't know what got into me! ; )

JustRite is releasing its 3rd new set called Sending You Sunshine. It is such a great set because it combines beautiful images to color along with great sentiments. My first card was a "colored" card!
The main image was colored with my Copics. I stamped the image again, colored one of flowers a second time, cut it out, glossy accented it, and adhered it to the image. The rest of the image was also glossy accented. I added teeny pearls to their centers. The sentiment was stamped with a olive Color Box ink. Image and sentiment were cut out using my circle Spellbinder's die. The oval and fancy tag are also by Spellbinders called, Fancy Tags Three. And as usual.....not to surprise anyone in the least, they were glittered!

The paper is Basic Grey's Lime Ricky paper pack.

For my next card I cut a tree with my Cricut machine. I stamped my sentiment with a pink Color Box ink and cut it out using a circle Spellbinder's die. I also cut out a scalloped circle to place behind it. The tree was cut at 3" and was Cuttlebugged using the Swiss Dots folder. The edges were then glittered. The trunk was embossed with a Papertrey Ink wood grain impression plate. The frame in the background is also a Cuttlebug embossing folder. (I've tried looking it up on the site and am unable to locate it......not sure why!)

This card is a bit lumpy and bumpy.......just the way I like it! ; )
