Sunshine :)

ahhhhh vacation/time off work is awesome!
We've had some great weather, family time and stamping time! 
Next Monday will come quickly :(

Until then I'll stamp as much as I can!

Here is a card I created last weekend using the Color Throwdown Challenge from last week.

It's a fairly quick CAS card.
I embossed the cloud background on white and popped up some butterflies from Reverse Confetti.
The Sunshine was die cut from SU(4x) and I brushed some Wink of Stella on it for a little sparkle ;)
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams
Paper: White, Pool Party
Ink: Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Cloud EF, Sunshine Wishes Dies, Reverse Confetti Butterfly Dies, Wink of Stella, Dimensionals

We just got back from vacation yesterday and I didn't have time to upload this SU! card before I left.
I really like how this one turned out. 
A little grunge on the background and some pretty floral flowers.
This was for the Freshly Made Sketch and the Colour Throwdown.
Stamps: Blooms & Wishes, Gorgeous Grunge
Paper: White, Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Watercolour Paper
Ink: Pool Party, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Botanical Builder Framelits, Dimensonals
