Sending You Sunshine!

Happy Saturday!  Popping in with a card to share.  I am playing along with this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge Embossing Enamel Splatters,  Papertrey Inks Transformation Tuesday Challenge, and Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

For the Transformation Tuesday Challenge, I chose to transform this card.  Here are more details on it if you are interested. 

I really love the fall colors of the above card, but I did not like all the hard and dark framing of the sentiment.  It seems to overpower the soft warm tones as well as the card.  For my transformation card, I decided to go with a softer frame as well as more vibrant colors since the seasons have changed.

I started with Papertrey Stampers select white card stock.  I started stamping Stitching Garden stamp set florals and leaves to mimic the all over patterned background from my previous card.  I used harvest goldbright buttercupprairie grassamethyst allure,  pure poppy, scarlet jewel, ocean tide, aqua mist, royal velvet, honey nut, lovely lady, hibiscus burst, simply chartreuse, ripe avocado inks.  

Once I had the background the way I wanted it, I die cut and layered several of the scalloped Keep It Simple Frames dies using Stampers select white card stock and glued together.  I stamped the sentiment from Corner Adorner: February mini stamp set onto vellum paper using versafine onyx black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I  added this behind behind the sentiment just like in my original to soften this portion of the background.  Next, I die cut in gold foil card stock as well as stampers select white card stock and glued together strength and dimension the Sunshine die.  

Once I had the card put together, I sprinkled on the embossing enamel heat set.  I love this look!  I got the Stampendous White which has some gold flecks as well.  It is really pretty.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
