Happy Sunshiny Day

Hi everyone!

This week on the Glitz blog, the digi team is sharing projects using the Sunshine in My Soul collection. I don't know why I have never used this collection before, but it is gorgeous! If you hurry, part of this collection is on sale at Jessica Sprague for One Buck Wednesday.

Here's my hybrid card:

Hello Sunshine

For the front panel, I used ink pads to watercolor the background, and then I added splatter on top. For the grouping, I resized and fussy cut some of the elements from the Sunshine in My Soul Element Pack. I used the bird paper from the SIMS Paper Pack 2 and cropped it to fit in the frame. Isn't the bird cool? I love it! I had to add a little stitching, so I stitched through the sentiments. 

The butterfly is die-cut from glitter cardstock using the Leanna die from Simon Says Stamp. Here's a close-up:

Hello Sunshine

I layered some of the Sunshine in My Soul papers underneath as well as some tissue paper to add some texture in the layers. I think I've used tissue on almost every project in the last six months...I love it! :)

I'm linking up to a couple of challenges. First, the CAS-ual Fridays Shades of Grey. I used four shades of grey on the card--the dark silver splatter, the grey on the frame, the grey on the bottom layer, and the silver butterfly. 

I'm also linking up to the Simon Says Stamp Glitter It challenge for the glittery butterfly. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
