Day Filled with Sunshine

Retro Sketch #123 by Tammy Hershberger
Happy Monday!  I don’t know about you, but I had some great stampy time this weekend… it was relaxing and wonderful!  I used the Retro Sketch #123 and the Pals Paper Arts color challenge #211 for this card that uses the Blue Skies Ahead stamp set from My Favorite Things.  The sentiment was stamped in Nightshift Blue hybrid ink on Sweet Tooth card stock and cut out with a Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-Namics.
  I matted this on a piece of Nightshift Blue card stock.  On the Sweet Tooth card stock back panel I used some white embossing paste with the MPD Scallops stencil.  With Lemon Drop card stock I die-cut the Die-Namics Sunflower, and used Hot Fudge card stock and Chocolate Brown card stock for the center, and Gumdrop Green card stock for the leaf.  Then I die-cut several flags from Nightshift Blue card stock, Sno Cone card stock and some vellum to finish the design (along with some scattered sequins!)
Here are my supplies…
