Hey, Sunshine

I took the dogs for a walk this morning and we got *poured* on just at the very end--two more minutes and we would have made it home without getting soaked.  And this is kinda what it looks like outside right now:


So I guess I'll have to go running after all.  :p  Anyway, my celestial card colors are courtesy of the Color Throwdown


I love bright colors.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Pacific Point, set off with a healthy dose of Basic Black.  You can't tell from the picture, but I used Shimmery White cardstock so the sun has a subtle sheen goin' on that's very pretty IRL.  And I used the sketch from the Paper Players


I actually wanted to use it for my Friday Flashback post this week since I know what stamp set it's going to be, but I just couldn't wait that long :D

Time to get my running shoes on.  Enjoy the sunshine, peeps!

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point

It was a rainy, cloudy day in my part of the world as well. Love your ray of sunshine card! Great way to feature the throwdown colors! Thanks for playing along with us again this week!

I really like that sun, too. It reminds me of Sunday Morning on CBS, the TV show. In between segments, they have a different sun with a face. So cool. Great colors.
