Sunshine Friend

It's Monday and that means another weekly challenge at BBTB2! This weeks challenge is to use a sunshine in our project. I chose the sunshine from Life's A Beach. I really liked the look of this sun cut. It was kind of classy looking. It reminded me of a piece of pottery artwork that would be hanging on the wall in somebody's house. I started the card with a teal 6x6 card base. I distressed the background paper and covered the card. I cut the sun and layer at 5" from mosaic patterned paper and orange cardstock. I used the negative from the layer cut to add a second level of rays behind the sun. I cut the sun in half and added it to the left side of the card. I Stickled the outline layer in copper. I cut a vellum phrase to fit the top of the card, and embellished the card with cork flowers, buttons and more copper Stickles.


Miles of Smiles,

Melissa is so pretty! I love the teal and copper together. The background paper is perfect. Reminds me of the wind. I love the way you cut the beautiful sun to only show part of it and that the flowers go off the page. Thanks for being a part of my "Sun Challenge."
