Hello, Sunshine

 
Posted by Picasa
Happy Monday morning!I have been in a more creative mood lately! I am sure happy about that since I was in a slump for so long. This card started out with squares that were leftover from the card I made yesterday using Take Three die. Since the card wasn't finished and I saw the new Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink, I decided to distress the edges of the squares. Thank you, Lisa for doing the video this week!. I have been trying to get out of my comfort zone and use colors that I wouldn't normally put together. I would say this card does just that. I love the sentiment from Handwritten Notes. I know many would love to see the sun shine more. We have the sun popping in and out of the clouds today. We are expecting rain.
I sure hope you are having a great start to your week,
Liz

Great card Elizabeth. I like how you have the squares going around the corner rather than having them in a straight line. Lovely colours too - it makes me think spring is on its way!

This is a really pretty card, love the three squares. I actually think I like the littler doilies the best in that stamp set. They look so nice against the blueberry sky paper.
