Sending You Sunshine card

I was inspired by the sentiment, so I made a jar full of sunshine.for Simon Says Anything Goes challenge.

The jar was cut from Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock using the Friendship Jar die, and covered with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. Then the jar was flipped over and used as a mask to brush Memento Dandylion ink onto the cardbase.

Then the jar was coated with a thick layer of Glow in the Dark Glitter glue. It curled for Scotland whilst it was wet, but dried beautifully. And it dried transparent so it doesn't affect the ink color.

The Jar lid was used to mop up a puddle of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink (and set aside to dry for a while). The Tag-its #3 sentiment was stamped onto a 1 3/4" circle. The frame from the set was stamped with Mustard Yellow Distress Ink, the sentiment was stamped with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and edged with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

Updated to add this picture of the card in the dark (after it had been exposed to light for about 20 minutes) Not power source bright, but definitely there  ).

What an absolutely brilliant card! I loved that idea of a jar full of sunshine and you pulled it off beautifully! What a great idea to incorporate the glitter glue! It really does shine! I also adore the happy stripes of color on the scallop and across the card's background. The sentiment goes along perfectly with the card and the whole thing is wonderful in every way. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
