Here's to You Blog Hop

CTMH has a great campaign going on right now with four beautiful stamps and a coordinating workshop kit!  It's called Here's to You, so be sure to check out all the wonderful ideas you'll get along this special blog hop.  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Vickie's blog.  From here you'll visit Kathy's blog next.)
I chose to get the Sending Sunshine stamp and knew that I had to add a little sunshine to this sentiment!
I picked a variety of yellow papers (and gold glitter) to make my sunburst.  Can you tell which paper packs I used?  (From top to bottom, Whimsy, Central Park, Canary card stock, Beautiful Friendship, Saffron card stock, gold shimmer trim, Documented, Canary card stock,  Beautiful Friendship, Central Park, and Whimsy!)
Here's a peek at how I added each piece after deciding my pattern.
After cutting the sentiment panel with my CTMH/Cricut Artistry cartridge, I added stripes of yellow water color to highlight the main words of the sentiment.
After drying this piece almost complete with my heat tool, I added painted over the swipes with my gold shimmer brush (and again used my heat tool to help dry/set).
The next step was to stamp in the sentiment in Saffron ink over the painted swipes. Some gold glitter gems finished off this card.
Hopefully my card sends YOU a bit of sunshine, laughter, and hugs!  I'd love a comment before you head off to see how Kathy used the pretty Here's To You collection!
