Beautiful Day

Hi everyone,

Today's card is one of my absolute favourites! It has a lot of little elements in it, and a lot of work has gone into it, but I think the effect is just gorgous.

I got my inspiration from Kristina Werner and Kathy Martin (whose digi-stamp I used). Next time I'll probably add a bit more colour below like Kristina did, but I think it looks really nice as is, too:

And a close-up of the sentiment:

So again I have indulged my little passion for clouds.
With the sentiment, I stamped it, and then went over the 'beautiful' (as you can probably already tell!) with my white gel pen a couple of times, which gives it a nice effect.

Hope you liked it!


Cardstock: White, blue, K&Co pieces in the bunting

Stamps: Kathy Martin's "Party Banner" (link above); Holly Brooke Jones' "Winter Love Notes" cloud.

Pen: White Signo gel pen
