Hello Sunshine!

Splitcoast Queen for a Day - QFTD53 K Dunbrook
Splitcoast Clean and Simple - CAS111 sketch
Splitcoast Free 4 All - F4A57 Inspired by the Sun
Splitcoast Inspiration - IC277 Ruche

As you can see, this card was inspired by a few Splitcoast Challenges.  {grin}  I've had the CAS sketch on my mind all week, I've just flipped it upside down for my purposes.  Then I was struck by a few yellow cards in the SCS gallery from the Queen for a Day challenge.  I have to say that yellow is usually the last color I would reach for, but today I have found it cheery and attractive!  {LOL}  So, of course, when I checked out the Inspiration challenge this Marigold Ring stood out to me.  And how could I not include the Free 4 All challenge when sunny yellow fits it so perfectly!  {wink}  

This week's "Queen for a Day" is Queen Karen, otherwise known as "k dunbrook" on Splitcoast.  Her gallery is full of bright and cheery cards - love it!  I was inspired by Golden Flowers.  I love her yellow background and how she double matted her yellow flowers with black and white layers.  And her sentiment has to do with "sunshine" - perfect!  {grin}

My flower is from the Color It Summer set by Paper Makeup Stamps.  I've colored and outlined it simply with copic markers.  I also went over the petals and leaves with a clear spica glitter pen for some sparkle {that my camera apparently cannot see}.  Hello Sunshine! is one of the many simple sentiments that you can find in the PMS store

Thanks for the visit and I wish you a Sunny Day!

Yellow is usually the last color I reach for too, but this could change my mind. So bright, eye catching, and cheery. I love it!!
