52 Cards Wk21: Hello Sunshine

For week 21 of the 52 card challenge Nat set us another sketch
At first I thought this was a nice easy sketch to work from, famous last words! I dithered for ages about whether to rotate it or not then faffed for ages over which papers to use, which sentiment I wanted. Then as I looked through my stash I came across a sticker sheet from Studio Calico's Sundrifter collection I received in a kit last year. On the sheet were a few sayings and the one saying "You are my sunshine" particular stuck out so I decided to use this. Cue more faffing over which papers to use until finally I made this card
I thought the orange in this paper from Carta Bella matched the sentiment sticker perfectly so went with this collection. I didn't like the idea of reading the sentiment sideways and at the same time changed my mind about rotating the sketch, so I compromised and placed the sentiment at the bottom right so you could still read it the right way. I added some heart trip I've had in my stash for ages and some stickers from the same sticker sheet to the left to fill in the gap. 


  1. I'd be pleased to receive this card :)

  2. Sometimes simple is the hardest! Nice job.
