Hey there, it's release day here at Taylored Expressions!  That means everything you've seen over the last couple of days is FINALLY available in the Fresh out of the Oven section of the store.  Woohoo!!!

Today's project uses the sooo very awesome set, Happy Heart.  LOVE!  As soon as I saw this sentiment, I knew I wanted to sponge a sun.  I went about it a little bit different than I normally would though.  I actually used a light box.  I started by stamping the sentiment on the backside of a sticky note then positioned it to the back of the Neenah card stock panel (I didn't want to stamp it on the panel because the sponging would pick up black from the sentiment and make it all muddy looking...ask me how I know!  Ha!).  I put it on the light box to figure out where I wanted to put the horizon.  I started by sponging Dandelion ink for the softer yellow then brought in the Cantaloupe to define the edge of the sun and the sun's rays.  After the sponging was complete, a Stamp-a-ma-jig was used to line up the sentiment.  Quick and easy!  *grin*

Here's the inside...another quickly sponged sun to tie back to the front of the card.
