A little bit of sunshine

Evening Everyone,
And what a chilly one it is too. There has definitely been no sign of any sunshine peeping through the clouds, just a grey and dull sky.
Maybe my card tonight will cheer things up a little bit. I have used the sketch over at Mojo Monday and the colour combo at CAS Colours and Sketches.
I’m not sure how Clean and Simple my card could be considered, but I did like the colour combo, it is nice to be encouraged to work with something different.
I have cut circles from white card using Circular Nesties and then sprayed them with Goosebumps Texture spray, before sponging them with Distress Inks Scattered Straw and Antique Linen.
The stamping around the edge of the white card has been done using the same colours of ink and Hero Arts F5042 Leaf Flourish.
The flowers from Jane Gill's JGCL572 Daisy Layers set have been stamped and embossed onto background papers from the Kaiser Kraft Lush Collection available from SirStampalot. They came to me in my challenge box a little while ago, so it is nice to have found a use for them.
The flower centres are punched using the smallest Woodware Circle Punch, and the leaves are a Martha Stewart Punch, as is the border across the centre of the card.
I added a Faux Stitched border and some Card Candi.
I hope that I am in time for the Mojo Monday challenge as our Internet has been offline all afternoon for some unknown reason.
Lets hope that tomorrow is warmer day, at least I haven’t had to venture outside today, which will not be the case tomorrow as I am back at work.
Have a good evening.
Hugs Kimx
