Trying to "See" the Sunshine through the Rain!

We are having A LOT of rain here and can't wait to see the sunshine ... hence the title for this post.

I am entering the cards in a "Bling Challenge" for Practical Scrappers. First time participating here, but my friend and someone who inspires me, Wanda, said I should enter these cards ... so here they are.

I haven't made any cards in so long! I made these for two very special friends who always bring sunshine into my life!
 I used a digital stamp from Scrapbook Boutique Digitals called Pocket-Full-O-Sunshine and the patterned paper on the bottom is from DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies stack. The lime, orange & pink cardstock is just from HL. I used the Swiss Dot & Stylized Flower Embossing folders with my Cuttlebug. On the digital stamp I used Copic Markers, Copic atyou Spica Pens, and, of course, stickles!! I added orange bling gems to the top.

 I used a digital stamp from Pink Cat Studio called Lady Bug on Flower and the Somebuggy Loves U stamp.The stamps were colored with Copic Markers, Copic atyou Spica Pens, and sei chalks. I used the Oval & Oval Scalloped Nestabilities, Martha Stewart punch, orange, yellow & blue cardstock from HL and background stripe paper from DCWV Citrus matstack. I added stickles and blue gems for bling.

 Thanks for looking! :)
