good morning, sunshine...

Hello friends!!  After spending far, far too long trying to make a different card work this morning I was able to whip up little card for the current CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  Have you ever done that??   Spent way too long trying to make something work even after it becomes obvious that it just isn't?  I try not to, but once in awhile I just can't let it go and walk away.  Thank goodness I finally was able to let it go and make something that did work, lol!!


I recently got a set of two washi tapes in a fun yellow, light blue and purple color way and decided to use it for my CAS(E) this sketch card.  Okay... I'm going to be honest it was easier to use the washi tapes to create the diagonal element then it was to stamp it!!    Once that was done I had to decide what other elements I was going to add and settled on the bright and cheery sun image along with the speech bubble with the sentiment "good morning, sunshine".  All the stamps and the die are from Taylored Expressions. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Taylored Expressions Garden Party Blooms and Delightful Day; Sun die:  Taylored Expressions:  Ink:  Memento Dandelion & Tuxedo Black; SU! Wisteria Wonder; Washi Tapes:  Chickydoddle
