August Diva Dare ~ Day 10

Hello there! TGIF, right? Amber here with Day 10 of the August Diva Dare! For those of you who are new to this challenge, here is how it works...following each release, we will post a theme that we dare you with, and you'll have two weeks to complete the challenge. During those two weeks, the release team will post their creations and tell you how they answered the dare!

This month, our theme is Sending Some Sunshine! Isn't that fun? This dare is totally open to any interpretations you might have, so jump right in and play with us!

I have a friend I've been missing a whole lot lately, and I thought it would be fun to send her a card to let her know!

There were SO many amazing stamps and dies released this past month, so I knew it was a bit of a chore deciding which ones I wanted to use. I decided on You and I and it's companion die set, I Heart YOu. All of the stamps on this card are from You and I, plus the matching dies, in addition to the Jotted Heart die and the smallest banner from the Charming Banner die set...

I clear embossed the "i" and "u" and used the heart for the dot instead of the regular dot...make sense? LOL! I tied a bit of twine around the "i" for some added interest.

Here you can see that I stamped "you" on the Charming Banner die and slid it into the opening on the "u"! I love how easy these dies make a card! Seriously, this card took me less than 20 minutes. I love that! The paper is from BG's new line, Indie Bloom! I love the bright *sunny* colors and patterns in this pad:)
