House of Cards Metallics Challenge...
Retro Rubber Challenge #20...

Hello Sunshine...

Hello all!  Happy Monday!  Today’s card was made with the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the colors from the Color Throwdown challenge. 

I started off by using my Simon Says Stamp sunshine die and die cut the word out of three colors – daffodil delight, elegant eggplant and garden green.  We have had a lot of sunshine lately and while that is great – we could use some rain.   But I am celebrating the sunshine anyway! fms ct 1 (554x640)

I used retired SU! confetti white paper for the card base – I adore this paper and tend to hoard it!  But I thought it would provide the right backdrop for this card.  A couple of strips of the natural chevron ribbon that I tied together provides the flag as required by the sketch and then I used the sunshines and the word hello to represent the square.  I was thinking a little outside the box – LOL! fms ct 2 (640x457)

A pretty simple card but one that I can use to send to someone who needs a pick me up!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Tomorrow starts the new Retro Rubber challenge so be sure to pop by to see what I made!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! confetti white, daffodil delight, elegant eggplant, and garden green.  Stamps:  WPLUS9 strictly sentiments 2.  Other:  SSS sunshine die.  SU! natural chevron ribbon and linen thread.

What a cool take on the sketch! Thinking outside the box worked perfectly on your card! I love the texture from the ribbon and twine and the three sentiments are genius! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!


Gorgeous card and great job combining challenges! The die-cut word in three colors is so effective. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
