Sunshiny Day...

I made this card several weeks ago... it was inspired by a couple of Splitcoast challenges...
First of all, the sketch - SC272.
Secondly, the Ways to use it - WT262... You are supposed to use something that you've had on hand... and the card was supposed to be for encouragement. Well, the flower that I used I have had on hand for a loooong time! I had seen this cool tutorial by Stacey King (Rebel Inker) a long time ago and made up some of these flowers with the 5 petal flower punch (109041). I made one card with one of them at the time and the rest have been in my scraps ever since. So... this sketch inspired me to use them up. You can't really see it, but there is also a Baroque Motifs scroll in Barely Banana ink on the left side of the flower. I used the wings from the 2-step bird punch (117191 - Occasions Mini) and sponged around the edges with old olive ink for the leaves on the flower. This "encouragement" card was sent to a friend of mine who moved from sunny Florida to Canada... I thought maybe she could use some sunshine since it's lovely spring here and still winter there! :)

Stamps: Baroque Motifs (113490), Sentiment - Lizzie Anne Designs
