Wishing You Sunshine!

Today's card is what I made for the PTI forum Spring/Easter Card Exchange.  Diane Jaquay was the recipient of my card.  
I had fun using some cheery Spring colors!  The base and ribbon are Berry Sorbet, the mat layers are Hawaiian Shores and Orange Zest.  I stamped Guidelines 2 onto Stampers Select White using Ocean Tides, Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores & a Distress Ink called Spiced Marmalade.  The sentiment is from Scattered Showers and I stamped the top of it in Hawaiian Shores and the bottom in Spiced Marmalade, then tied it to the ribbon with a bit of Button Twine.

Happy Friday!  Hope you are all able to log a few hours or more in your crafty spaces this weekend...I sure hope to!  Thanks for stopping by!

Anika, your design work lately is really outstanding. This card is amazing. The color combo is lovely and I love how the sentiment is multi-colored too! I finished up your card for the spring swap and went to mail it yesterday when I relized a part of it fell off! SO I'm fixing it today and will drop it off on Monday.
