Hello Friend!


Well hello friends! I hope your day is bright and beautiful. Unfortunately for me it's a gloomy spring day here in the Midwest. April showers and all that. I decided to focus on the positive.. the rainbow after the showers are gone and the sun comes out.

My card starts with the Sunburst Foil Plate from Waffle Flower. I used some sticky notes to section off each of the stripes and then colored them with a small cosmetic brush and Distress Ink. It took some time.. not as long as coloring. I counted the stripes for the first color (let's say pink) and that made it easy to add the next color (darker pink) all at the same time using the same brush and sticky paper.

The center of the starburst was a mess.. where all the colors met together. To cover that up I added a Slim Shaker Circle die cut.

He Hello Friend sentiment is from a three piece set called Hey There Foil. I trimmed it with a paper center and adhered it across the center of the circle.

Some white enamel dots are the finishing touch. I'm so happy with how it turned out!

I'm linking this card up at Inspiration Station where the theme is April Showers. I hope you find some time to play!
