BYOS (Bring Your Own Sunshine)

Hello again!  Tonight I have a fun card to share.  I used this week's challenge at Mojo Monday and am also entering it in a color challenge at Global Design Project (#GDP005).

I love the sentiments from the stamp set Ray of Sunshine.  They are really inspiring to me and this one in particular reminds me of the choices we have every day about our attitudes towards everything in life.

The cute cloud and rain drops are from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set, and I thought they worked just perfectly with the sentiment and my take on the sketch.  While the Ray of Sunshine stamp set has stamps for a sun, it takes a wee bit of practice to align properly, even with a Stampamajig, and I have not yet had time to perfect my skill at it, so I pulled out a retired stencil to make the sun image.

Such an easy-peasy, clean and layered card, finished off very simply with multi strands of thick Baker's Twine.

Thanks so much for visiting, and of course I would love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment!  I've included links above to both challenges and encourage you to use them to check out all the delightful inspiration.
