Spellbinders - You Brighten my Day

Hello friends!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend - it is COLD COLD COLD here and inside is the place to be!  Perhaps the weather is my inspiration for this card - hoping to see more sunshine - although I have to say the days have been beautiful once we recover from temps around -8 degrees Celsius overnight.

I have used the adorable Spellbinders Rise n Shine Dies from the 'My Little Red Wagon' Collection by Licensed Designer Debi Adams 

The sun has been cut/embossed using the Platinum 6, the circle being sponged using Imagine Radiant Neon inks in  Electric Orange and Electric Coral.  It has then been tucked in behind the computer generated sentiment.

The clouds have been trimmed and sponged around the edges using Imagine Memento Ink in Gray Flannel, to soften the edges and add a little hint of twilight.

The Row of Houses has been cut using black card stock and adhered using liquid glue to the base of the card front.  Random windows have been coloured using a Yellow Gel Pen and a little shimmer to the sky using liquid glitter - Kindy Glitz.

The patterned paper is from the free gift in Love Cardmaking #17 that is being released this month
