The sunniest of days :)


At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Rick St. Dennis as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Isabella Sunny Days by Rick St.Dennis is such a sweetie 🙂 She’s coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers then fussy cut.I decide to go for a rustic,country feel with some yellow gingham and pale kraft card.The ric rac and cord also follow that theme.The greeting has been cut out with individual alphabet dies.The intention was to leave them open but as I always add inserts to my cards I didn’t want the white to show through and spoil it.So instead I found this scrap of blue spotty paper and adhered it behind and inlaid the letters.I also think this colour gives a little lift.The butterfly was punched from some more kraft and a cute,threaded,flower button added to the centre.She’s just perfect for today….The sun has finally decided to shine here in the UK 😀
