Sunny Hello - BC #93

It's a sketch challenge this week for the Blogger's Challenge group. I really like this one too. I don't know why I don't make this size card more often. It's fun to try something different and I am usually really happy with them when they're done.

I started with chocolate chip card stock and added SU's Good Morning Sunshine patterned paper. This paper lifts my spirits just by looking at it. I am really craving a little sunshine! I used various punches for the focal point and added a handwritten message. For the finishing touch...three chocolate brads.

Be sure to visit the other Bloggers' sites for more versions of the sketch. You'll find them by clicking on the graphic in my side bar.






It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up, Good Morning Sunshine

Stamps: None
Ink: Distress Ink
Accessories: Dimensionals, brads
Tools: SU Punches
