Here Comes the Sun(flowers)

Finally! The sun has peeked through the clouds of La Nina and it has brightened my soul! I was so inspired by the light (and a card sent to me years ago by a demonstrator friend, Mindi B) that I pulled out the Love & Care stamp set from the Summer Mini catalog and my Stampin' Pastels for a little "Poppin' Pastels":

This technique is really fun and easy: Stamp with Versamark onto white card stock and then use sponge daubers to apply pastels (chalk) to the stamped image and watch the color POP! It's such a cheerful look, matching my optimistic attitude today. Oh, and the flowers embossed into the Early Espresso card stock is the new Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (also from Summer Mini). Enjoy the sunshine!

Pretty card. I'll have to try that technique with the stamp set.
