Hello Sunshine

Hi Friends,

It's the weekend - yipee.  I hope you find some time to craft. I  managed to squeeze in some crafting this morning and make a CAS card for the My Favourite Things Card Design Superstar Contest., just making the deadline.  I have bought so many MFT goodies lately and would have loved to enter more cards but I just haven't had enough time to play with them - never mind :)

I stamped this super cute Tucan onto copic friendly paper and coloured him in. I decided I wanted to add more colour to his bill so added an extra section with my copic liner - my hand slipped slightly and well it didn't go to plan - he's unique that's for sure!  I added a dot of black enamel accents to his eye and also added some glossy accents to his bill.

I die-cut a stitched circle and sponged on three different colours of ink to create my sun.  I die-cut some greenery and sponged them with MFT Sour Apple Die Ink. The banner is from Blueprints 20 and I stamped the sentiment on with black ink. I then layered them up and adhered them to some woodgrain cardstock which was die-cut using the large square from Blueprints 12. I adhered the Tucan with some foam pads.  I added some pretty pink posh sequins for some sparkle :)
