Sending Some Sunshine...

Over on the Verve blog, they are hosting a happy challenge for this month's Diva Dare, "Sending Some Sunshine." I thought I would make a card to send to a friend of mine whom I haven't seen in a while and this was the perfect theme! I got out some of my fave stamps and paper-pieced this sweet balloon, pairing it with some pretty patterned paper. After going through my stash, I was a bit appalled by how many embellishments I have never used, including this fun sentiment frame -- a bit of threaded ribbon and I had a nice card to send to a friend!

Stamps: Up, Up and Away and sentiment from Accent Notes (Verve)
Ink: Riding Hood Red (Stampin' Up!); Memento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red (SU); Choice Buttercream (Taylored Expressions)
Patterned Paper: Odds & Ends (Cosmo Cricket)
Accents: Very Vanilla Hodge Podge (SU!); Liquid Pearls (Ranger)
Fibers: Riding Hood Red Ribbon (SU!)

Love this designer paper and how you used it on that awesome card! Your friend will be bouncing off the walls when she opens this beauty! Great colors too! I'm with you on finding stuff in my stash that I didn't know I had ... it's Christmas all over again!
