My shining star

My shining star

bring me sunshine

Morning all! Well it rained here all day again  yesterday - the only sunshine was on the little faces of my pack of rainbows! Bless them!

Anyway - I've got a bright and cheery card to start this new rainy day with and I have to say that I'm very pleased with it - well mostly!!! And here it is:



I've used sketch 73 from the sketch and stash library

and this stamp is my unused stash - I know - how could I leave it lying uninked for so long!  I've coloured the image with promarkers added the embellies and ribbons and bow.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
sweetstampinchallengeblog: Ribbons and bows
housemouse-challenge: Liq refreshment for hot summer days
movingalongwiththetimes: Birthday Bash
stampinfortheweekend - show us your style.
lexiscreations: At the beach
tuesdayalchemy: Furry animals.

Hope you all have a lovely Thursday and thanks for any comments you may leave - it really does make my day!

Hugs rachel xx
