SOS 417: Under the Sun, Moon, and Stars - used supplies from my stash, no new supplies used
Addicted to CAS Challenge #181 - Texture - embossing folder

For today's card, I used an embossing folder for the background. Well mostly, you see this pattern is laid out in landscape mode. While I created my card in portrait mode. So to get the pattern on the bottom, I used my Speedball handle tool. It was able to press the pattern into the remaining part of the cardstock. The sun is made using a die cut. And the rainbow pieces were cut out of my paper trimmer. The sun and rainbow pieces were ink smooshed to create a watercolor look. And the sentiment was stamped on a scrap and then fussy cut to create the banner.

Stamps: MFT Clearly Sentimental About New Beginnings
Paper: CTMH White Daisy, Canson XL Watercolor
Ink: CTMH Archival Black, Clover, Bluebird, Nectarine, Candy Apple, Pansy
