Sunshiny Day

Awhile back I bought this adorable duck stamp, Just Ducky (F7039), from Impression Obsession.  He is so precious and has quite the expression.  When I showed him to my friends they all ended up buying him, too.  He ended up in one of my piles but when I saw the Impression Obsession challenge this week I just had to dig him out. 


I used the sketch from Simon Says Stamps for this card, with a mixture of embossing and distressing.  The decorative paper at the bottom of the card is Seedling from Basic Grey's Green at Heart collection.  Behind the duck is the IO’s image, Flower Pot Stack (C1755), cut out with a Spellbinders’ circle die and layered on a lovely Circle MultiFrame Die from Nellie Snellen.  The sentiment is Sunshiny Day (B5451), also from Impression Obsession. 

Hope you have a sunshiny day!
