FMS86: Sunshine Summer Card

 This card was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge (#86).  The sketch was very simple and I decided to keep it simple to focus on the sentiment.

When I saw the sketch I knew that I wanted to use the Feel Goods Stamp Set on the main panel of the sketch.

I simply love all the sentiments in this stamp set.  I decided to use the Sunshine one, so I went with green and yellow for the colors.  Makes me think of the upcoming summer.

The bright colors give a happy feel and make this card great to give to anyone who needs a little pick up, which made this fun to make since it is rainy here today.  The small green dahlia helps bring the green onto the panel and adds dimension.

Since I move the sentiment from the original sketch, I added a few brown rhinestones to the bottom edge of the card.  I love that I can make my rhinestones any color by simply coloring them with a Sharpie marker.  I have a very large set of multiple colored pens for just this purpose.  What is your favorite technique to dress up a card?
