Welcome Sunshine!!!

Boy am I thankful the sunshine is back today! In fact, it is expected to be fairly nice and warmer this whole week from what I understand. WOOHOO!! Today I decided to take a break from the stresses of tax preparation and actually stamp a little. I've got tomorrow's Diva challenge card done so be sure to stop back tomorrow for a great new sketch. For now I'm sharing this card with you. I used the Mojo Monday sketch challenge from yesterday. LOVE this sketch! It's got some great details that are specific, but can also be interpreted in so many ways. Love that!

I intended to make a sympathy card today since I am out of them, but decided I was too happy and just felt like making a happy card. This old set of textured papers is called Parisian Breeze Specialty papers. I'm so glad I have some left to play with- they are gorgeous and really the star of this card. I only added a bit of piercing and some kraft taffeta ribbon, then embossed the sentiment from Well Scripted (a favorite!) and that's it.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are enjoying sunshine in your neck of the woods today!
