Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge

     I am sharing a card today that was inspired by Ellen Hutson’s Pin-Sight Challenge and also by a short visit I had in San Juan Puerto Rico. I was lucky enough to take a cruise....a long time ago....and we stopped in San Juan only for about 5 hours. That short visit made an amazing impression on me and I think of it often. The colors of the houses and buildings were beautiful pastels that you would never see here in Wisconsin. The people were so friendly and welcoming, everything about the day was perfect. When I think of what all of Puerto Rico is going through it makes me so sad and I wish there was more that could be done for them...and much faster. So this is my tiny little dedication to that beautiful place and the beautiful people there.

     When I saw these beach cabanas from this Avery Elle set I decided to turn them into the beautiful thin tall houses on the hills that were in San Juan, and I used colors with my Prismacolor pencils that I remember from my visit. The background is made with the Honey Bee Stamps Layered Sunshine Stencil set and blending inks in the Altenew Pocketful of Sushine Set. The sentiment is from the Ellen Hutson and Honey Bee United We Flourish  Sending Sunshine Set. Then finished, of course, with Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

     This is the Pin-Sights Challenge Picture for inspiration, and this beautiful image took my mind immediately to Puerto Rico.
