Beautiful Sunset - May 2017 Hip Kit

We had amazing weather last week with temperatures that rose into the 30 degrees C.  I am not complaining...I love the respite from the cold weather and this was right up my alley.  We ended up spending some time at the beach.  Kobus took this photo of Stefan with his cellphone and I wanted to scrap it right away.  The Dear Lizzy Lovely Day (Up and Away) paper was perfect for a background paper.  I am entering the for the Color Story Inspiration Case File 234.

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Dear Lizzy (Lovely Day), Maggie Holmes (Chasing Dreams); Cardstock:  American Craft:  Letter Stickers:  Hip Kit Exclusive,  American Craft; Buttons:  Maggie Holmes; Enamel dots: My Minds Eye; Die cuts:  Dear Lizzy, Hip Kit Exclusives;Foam Stars:  American Craft;  Layered Stickers:  Dear Lizzy; Embroidery Floss:  DMC.

The case file:
This is how I solved this case file:

The Scheme:  All the colours were used.

Evidence:  Flowers (on the embellishments), transportation (hot air balloon), Sun, scallops.

Testimony:  I documented a warm summers evening in the middle of the winter.  My title is about nature.  My journaling is:  "Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens...every day can end beautifully." - Kirsten Butler
Some close ups:
 I cut the sun from the same patterned paper as the background and then used variegated DMC embroidery thread for the stitching.

 Some layering and the gorgeous Hip Kit Exclusive alpha.

 I adore this collection.

 The foam stars are the foam "beautiful" word is from the Shimelle Thickers by American Craft.

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens...every day can end beautifully.
