enjoy this day

Usually I need to have someone in mind when I'm making a card so that I have some inspiration, but today I was inspired by the photo in the Paper Smooches Picture Perfect Challenge and decided to play along.

My brother, sister, and I tried several times to take pictures like this in Hawaii, where someone is holding up the sun, but we never got one that turned out like this...

Very cool.  So, I decided to use the colors and shape to make this...

I did some masking so that I could make the little bird on the right have an eyes-closed blissful expression.  So stinkin' cute!

Thanks to Paper Smooches for such a fun challenge!


Stamps: Paper Smooches Spring Fling and Flap Happy
Inks: Copic markers; Ranger Distress Ink (spiced marmalade, wild honey); Memento (tuxedo black)
Dies: Simon Says Stamp mini hearts set
