Avocado Arts- Go time!



 Today the first Avocado Arts kit "Sunshine and Smiles" is being revealed!!

Make sure to head on over to the Avocado Arts blog, facebook page, and the website to check it all out and see the WHOLE kit!!!


 
Here is my first AA card- Wishing you sunshine and smiles!
I stamped the little flower builder center over and over to create a rainbow-
The cloud is stamped and popped up with foam dots as is the nestabilies square with the rainbow-


 I used my standard circles nestabilities to create the start of the shape-and stamped the blue all around the die.

I then just repeated the patterned with each color-
