Sending You Sunshine and Laughter

This is my entry for this weeks Card Patterns sketch.  I like to play with colors that vibrate, but they sure are difficult to photograph.  I am still in the middle of another round of snow here in DC, and I think I was dreaming of the Southwest when I designed this card.  At least I do have sunshine and laughter here today.  (And my electricity)


I have owned this flower stamp for months, and this is the first time I have inked it.  It is by Outlines Rubber Stamp Company.  I used Chestnut Roan chalk ink by ColorBox.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts CL342, Everyday Sayings.  It was embossed in white.  All the papers were from scraps.  It is so enjoyable to use scraps once in a while,  instead of tearing into a new sheet of paper.  The buckles are a Sizzix die.  Added stitching with sewing machine, and button brad.
