*Hello Sunshine*

This card came together slowly, but it came together. 

I used my Misti with a border stamp and Catherine Pooler inks to create the background, one line at a time.  I wasn't sure I liked it so I set it aside for a bit.

So I picked it up again a while later and trimmed the panel down and then and added the black layer using my Perfect Layers Tool.  And I put it aside again.

So a while later I picked it up again... put it on a white side fold card and thought "now what"?  So I used the hello dies from Concord & 9th, the fatter one out of black and the thinner one out of a very sparkly My Favorite Things silver.  I adhered it to the front of the card and stamped the word "SUNSHINE" underneath the die with VersaFine black ink.  I used my Misti so I could stamp it several times to make sure it was good and dark.

And I don't hate it...
