Sending Sunshine

Monday, April 4, 2011

We could do with some sunshine here today, it was dull, wet and windy! I love this daffodil digi from Paper Garden Projects it's part of the Spring Blooms 2 Digital Stamp Set, now available at The Digichick!! I painted it with acrylic paints.

I used this week's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #5 as my starting point, I did have to move the bow over a little to fit my sentiment in!! 

The sentiment is from the same set Spring Blooms 2 Digital Stamp Set. I just added it to a die cut tag. I distressed the edges with some Distress Ink in antique linen. The fab ribbons and twine are from The Ribbon Reel.

The background is stamped with Text-It from Waltzingmouse Stamps in lemon yellow. Papers are from October Afternoon The Thrift Shop and 7Gypsies Conservatory Collection. Enjoy the rest of the day!
