I Choose The Sunshine

Hello, and thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card.  It's definitely a cheerful card.  So......when I play along in a challenge that has the theme "Come Rain or Shine", you can bet that I will always choose the sunshine.  I SO enjoy bright, cheerful cards and colors that celebrate everything representing Spring and FUN, and I think that's exactly what the colors in this card do.
I used lots of great Crate Paper Oh Darling patterned papers, the 3-D girl, the tag, the sweetheart banner, and the bows.  The glittery chipboard frame is also from Crate Paper, and I added a small piece of vintage scotch tape, and a length of Solid Blue Baker's Twine.  I just love the soft, sweet feel this card has, and how the pastel colors lend a touch of Spring and happiness.
I'm sharing my card in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Come Rain or Shine" - This card definitely falls much more into the "Or Shine" category.  At leat that is, until this evening when I accidentally spilled my coffee on it and it "got rained on" for sure.

Thanks again for visiting.  Have a sunshine filled day!

  1. Lovely card, so many awesome details! This for sure will brighten someones day. After living in AZ for 6 months I think I would choose the rain! I love a good gloomy rainy day once in awhile just to curl up on the sofa with a good book and read. We have seen a couple of sprinkles since we moved but nothing I would call rain! Happy Easter!
