Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 233-Hello Sunshine

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  This one has lots of possibilities, but I kept my version super simple, letting die cut pieces do most of the work for me

Hello Sunshine card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud
I adhered a dotted patterned paper panel to a light blue card base, then ran a strip of turquoise cardstock across the cardfront at the top of the patterned paper panel.  For the sentiment, I die cut the word "hello" from gray cardstock with WPlus9's Hand Lettered Hello die.  The word "sunshine" from the coordinating Hand Lettered Hello stamp set was stamped beneath the die cut word in gray ink.  I accented the text with a sun made from a pinking circle die cut and a white felt cloud cut with a cloud die from Lawn Fawn.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
