Hi again! This is my second post of the day. For my NND post, click here.

Welcome back! Can you believe it's already the last Thursday of May?! I feel like this first half of the year just flew by! It's been a fun, but crazy busy first half of the year and I'm excited to see what's in store for the rest of the year. Today there's a new challenge over on the Share Joy Challenge blog. I went with color challenge and create a sweet "hello" card using the Pocketful of Sunshine
Share Joy Challenge #37 - Peeping out to say hello by HandmadebyYuki | Pocketful of Sunshine by Taylored Expressions
I started off by stamping the flowers directly onto a white card panel. I masked the flowers and then inked the background using a soft navy dye ink. I colored the flowers with Copic Markers and then stamped the sentiment directly onto the panel. I also colored the cute chick with Copic Markers and then fussy-cut it out, leaving a white border. Also inspired by the color challenge, I die cut a picket fence from Chocolate Truffle.  I used a stitched cloud die to add a layer of white clouds to the top of the panel. I die the grass using a grass border die and inked it up with a beanstalk green dye ink. For the card base, I used Toffee card stock. To finish the card, I added some natural twine and covered the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella glitter.

I had so much fun playing along with this week's color challenge. I hope you were inspired as well and be sure to swing by the Share Joy Challenge Blog to see more amazing inspiration! Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful day! ♥
