I came up with this card using Papertrey Ink Make it Market Mini Kit: Sunshine & Rainbows.

I started by making a cloud mask and moved it across the card while I sponged on Pan Pastels in a couple of shades of blue to create the sky. I added some green Pan pastel to the bottom of the card and then cut the card with a stitched rectangle die. I stamped and die cut the swing and bird and hand cut a branch from some kraft card to hang the swing from.

The sentiment is from the Avery Elle Tweet Tweet set and I used a strip of paper from PTI along one side. To finish it off, I added a few punched clouds from my stash.

You will find lots more inspiration on the ATSM blog and I hope you will join in with us this time.
Thanks for stopping by
