Wednesday Card-April Challenge at Scrap Our Stash

Happy Wednesday everyone,
Hope you are having a good day. I am excited for today because they are calling for temperatures in the 60's and sunny. Oh I can't wait. I think after school I will walk with the boys to the park.  I can't wait!

Over at Scrap Our Stash they are having their monthly challenge.  This months challenge is to Bring in the Sun.  Well I was stumped at how I was going to incorporate a sun into a project.  I thought about it all day and came up with NOTHING!  So I went to bed and I had the best dream.  I came up with the entire card in my dream.  I love it when that happens.  As soon as I woke up I got my sketch pad out and sketched the layout so I wouldn't forget.    Here is what I came up with:

Bee Happy

I loved making this card because I got to include all my favorite things:die cuts, inking, stamping, coloring.  What could be better?

First I used my scraps and traced and cut out my hills.  Next I went to town using my Silhouette. I made the postage stamp base, the sun and the cloud.  I then stamped my bee and made a little mask for it.  I also made a mask for the edges of the postage stamp.  I wanted those to remain white.  I then used my Tim Holtz distress ink and my blending tool and inked up the sky.  I then inked the edges of my cloud.  I colored in my cute little bee with my copics and then stamped the sentiment.  To give the hills a bit of dimension I added some faux stitching to them, and then pieced it all together.  I had a ton of fun creating this card.  I am not sure who I am going to send this to, but I hope it will brighten someones day.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great day.  I will be back tomorrow with a new layout!
