Freshly Made Sketches #429

A little dose of cheer to brighten your day!  I created a quick and simple card for the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I am fairly certain that I placed my clouds farther apart in my mind.  Let's just say I ended up condensing the sketch a little!  Here is the original sketch design-

This is about as close to a one layer card that I get!  I placed a line of purple tape on my panel to create my straight edge.  I then applied distress oxide inks in Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber and Faded Jeans to create the rainbow.  I die cut my clouds and sun and applied in layers with 3-D foam tape.  My sentiment is stamped in Intense Black ink.

1385 White Daisy Cardstock
