nothing but blue skies

i have to say, i love love love this inspiration photo for the most recent AEI♥U Challenge at the avery elle blog! the colors, the vintage feel, and the FUN! it's awesome!!

i couldn't wait to play along! ...and then i got a creative block! i couldn't make or think of anything! i hate when that happens.
anyway, i pulled through and made this card, which i do adore! 

i used some peacock feathers and distressed the sky background on my card. i reeeeaaaallly like it! i was going for darker at the top and lighter at the bottom (an ombre, if you will). :)

then i stamped and fussy cut out all of the stars from the celebrate stamp set! i added some glossy accents to the little stars, and then popped up the larger ones.

finally i added some white enamel dots (because i really love the white accents on the inspiration photo!!) and stamped the sentiment from happy camper!

i can't help but smile when i see this card - just like when i see the inspiratin photo! :)
i hope this card brightens your day too!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
