Rainbows and Sunshine....everything but the kitchen sink #13!

Howdy friends!  The girls at Everything but the Kitchen sink have a super fun sketch challenge going on that got me thinking WEATHER (weather, huh?).  Yep, weather!  You'll see what I mean....

I saw rainbows and
SUNSHINE! 
Oh happy day!  I flipped that sketch on the side and made some super happy sunshine rays with an amazing stamp set from Courtney Baker/Practicing Creativity!  BTW, the rays are distress stamped on purpose to leave a little white showing.....When you want this to stamp clean, it totally does!

Doesn't this make you want to celebrate something great?? 

One more shot of the rainbow to show off some clearly heavy HAMBLY with my fave grid overlay from Hambly too.  This card is see-thru, yeah! Love that!  Also, wanted to give a shout out to a local store, The Legacy, where I picked up this so cute recycled eyelet trim.  It's a great place to pick up second hand craft items and benefits a great cause.

Thanks so much for coming by today!  Have a good one!

Supplies:

Rainbow card:
cardstock: Papertrey Ink
overlay: Hambly
craft supply: buttons and eyelets

Oh Happy Day:
Cardstock: CM and Papertrey Ink

The rainbow card is awesome as well as the ray card. I thought of the rainbow too but now am glad that I didn't try it out, yours is so awesome! And love what you did with the rays from You're Dandy. So creative, they both make me smile.
