My Sunshine by Mischelle Smith
This set makes my heart so happy ... I decided to make another card with it.  This time however ... I cut into one of my favorite paper packs that I LOVE!  I'm a paper hoarder ... so it hurt!  But, I LOVE the palette ... pink, yellow and a touch of limey green.  Wish I could have captured the colors better in editing ... but I didn't want to spend all day editing when I could be making!  {I know ... I MUST work on this!}

This was also the first time I've used Wink of Stella!  I don't know what I expected ... but it was different than I thought.  I really like it ... I just didn't realize it was opaque and would dull my highlights and blacks.  So, I went back over several images with my black Micron liner.  I'm okay with that ... and now I know.  I REALLY LOVE how the Stella interacts with my Glossy Accents!  The sparkle is GORGEOUS and gentle and sweet!

And did you notice those LOOONG legs?  I LOVE redesigning stamps {smiles} and I LOVE these little babes with long legs!  I also took out my darkest copics and only colored these images with my lighter shades ... as I continue to try and lighten my heavy hand.

I think my favorite part of this card is the little birdie singing her heart out to Jesus ... cause that's what I was doing while I made this ... singing my heart out to Jesus.  I have some new-to-me tunes on my ipod and they were perfect!

... and so many more.  {smiles}  It's hard to stay down in the dumps when you're singing songs that speak to your heart.  And thank you, Lord, my pink EYES are on the mend!

So ... that's a wrap.  Time for more making!
