Hello Sunshine!


KonnichiWa Everyone!

Konnichiwa means hello or good afternoon in Japanese. I was hoping it would mean sunshine to fit the challenges I'm entering even better, but think it works quite well anyway!
Hope you are having a beautiful day - No sun here yet, but I'm still on Easter break for two more days, with no big plans so hopefully this means some crafting time at my desk (-:



Today's card was made for Hero Art's themes ; Sunshine + shaped cards;  I've used stamps from their new super sweet set called Japanese Garden and for Create's spring card challenge.




I used the colors blue, red, green and yellow for the PlayDate Cafe, the bingo squares; Blue , die cuts and flowers at Totally Papercrafts, my spellbinders for the diecut challenge at One stop Craft and it also fits the "April showers bring spring flowers" at Simon says stamp and spring flowers at Cute Card Thursday.
+  the Anything goes at ABC dt

Hugs, Karin
