Spreading Sunshine

Some sunshine for you all with this card using the Papertake Weekly Sketch and Designs by Krista Southern Sunrise papers. Still hanging on to the summer as best I can ๐Ÿ™‚

The swirl was made by printing the flourish embellishment from Krista’s kit onto inkjet acetate, cutting it out and layering on top of a paper flower fixing with the brad. I like the translucent affect you get ๐Ÿ™‚
