Sunshiney Days

I made this for a friend's birthday coming up this weekend. She's had a lot of changes in her life this past year. Some good, some not so good, and difficult to process. So, I thought this sentiment would be perfect for her for her new year of new things!
I did the Just Magnolia challenge on this, but I can't tie a bow to save my life! So, I got ribbon on there in three places, but no official bows. I did the sketch challenge from Stamps and Smiles. Not used to a big area of space lately, but I think it works very well on this sketch. It was hard not to find more things to fill it in when I was working on it, but when I put this Zva Create flourish on it from Rachel's store, I thought it was the perfect touch. It still showed off my pattern paper from Cosmo Cricket, which I also got from her store. I found this Magnolia stamp a little harder to paper piece than I expected. The basket with the loose flowers threw me. I added the flower soft to kinda hide that area a little! Makes for a perfect cover up! LOL!

Supplies: Riding hood red, so saffron cardstock, stickles, primas, Amy R Beach Sentiments, Magnolia, nesties, copics, flower soft

Thanks for stopping by!
