Have a Sunshiney Day!

My niece is going on a mission trip to El Salvador this summer and needed to raise some money to help fund her trip, so I whipped up this little card to send to her, with a check enclosed.  I love these little Pure Innocence stamps from My Favorite Things - they are really easy to paper piece, which is what I did for her outfit, using the same papers I used for the two strips behind the main image. 

I used last week's Sketch For You To Try for my layout and the color combination from last week's Color Throwdown #91, which were Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise and Kiwi Kiss.  These BasicGrey Lemonade papers were perfect for those colors.

I used two different border punches for the mat layers under the strips, matching the punch design to go with its corresponding patterned paper, and added three rhinestone flowers in the bottom corner. The background was airbrushed using a Copic marker.  Pretty simple, but fun!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
