Sending you sunshine!

I'm thrilled to be here today sharing my bright and colorful "sending you sunshine" card! We've had rain pretty much every day for the last I don't know how many days! Sunshine peeks through here and there, but this card is certainly fitting for the weather we've been having! I'm pretty confident that with this cute duck sporting a pink polka dot umbrella and splashing around, this is sure to send some sunshine!

I've been dying to use the new Over The Rainbow Confetti Cuts paired with the Square & Circle Frame Confetti Cuts so that was the jumping point of my design. The arc of the rainbow and the arc of the die cut circle didn't quite match up, but I decided to go for it anyway. In the end, I added so many other details that it's hardly noticeable!  LOL!
I had a bunch of rainbow pieces left over from my rainbow cards I made during the release, so I just sort of scrambled up the order and made my own custom rainbow!  The clouds are die cut and then I did some ink blending as well as some ink splattering on them for a rainy day feel! I also added some extra detail by layering the largest square from the Stitched Squares Confetti Cuts over the card. The background paper is from the Sweet Stripes 6 by 6 pattern paper pad. The diagonal lines kind of bring in the look of diagonal rain falling, which I love.

 I stamped the umbrella, which is from the Rainy Day Fun stamp set, onto a piece of white cardstock and again onto a piece of Darling Dots pattern paper. I fussy cut the polka dot portion and adhered it to the other stamped image using liquid glue. I die cut it using the Rainy Day Fun Confetti Cuts. Once that was done, I gave it a good coat of Crystal Glaze for some shine! The duck's bill, feet and "splashes" all got some as well!
The duckie, puddle, and "splash" images are all from the Rainy Day Fun stamp set as well. I think the duck looks so cute holding the pink umbrella and splashing around! The sentiment is stamped in black onto a white strip and then added to the top of the card using foam squares. This entire card has SO many foam squares it is kindof comical! This one is definitely not going to be able to be mailed unless I put it in a special box or something! LOL! I had a lot of fun on this design! Thanks for fluttering by!
