Sunny Aloha

I needed a bit of sunshine today . . . we're on like day 30 of rain! Ok, maybe not 30 but we sure have had a rainy June! I think maybe the sun is expected to make an appearance on Thursday or Friday - just in time for my parents to arrive home from their cross-country camping trip! :)

So, here's the sun for me today, I've always loved yellow! Growing up my bedroom was a sunny yellow color, it has always made me happy! So today I decided to make a card with yellow as the predominate color. I used Aloha Sophia which is actually the Stamp of the Month Club stamp for next month at Paper Pretties! Wouldn't it be nice to be sitting on some tropical island right now?!

The layout for this card is from a blog I found following links, Clean & Simple Stamping. I'm sure it's not new to many of you but I think I'm behind a bit - lol! Anyway, I took a bit of liberty with the sketch but I like the result! The dp is from October Afternoon's Ducks In a Row line.

Have you checked out The Paper Clip lately? Every week Jodi picks a Prettie Card of the Week. This week's COTW is from Wendy Bond using Flirty Fortunes - such a cuuuuttteee card!! Upload your Prettie card to the Paper Pretties Gallery and you could be featured! Have a great day!

Cardstock: White (Papertrey Ink), Green (Bazzill), Patterned Paper: Sleep Tight, Ducks In a Row collection (October Afternoon), Stamps: Aloha (Paper Pretties), Ink: Memento, Accessories: Flower (Prima), brad (SU!), Nestabilities, Copic markers
