Bring on the sunshine!!!

There are a few reasons I just love summer and so I am very happy that it is officially here! One of the things I just love are the longer days of daylight. What is funny is that the sun has been doing a whole lot of hiding but I know it is there so I am good. I thought I would share a card I created for a challenge that is SUMMER related and it has a few fun aspects to it.

I used some of my absolute favorite papers, We R Memory Keepers, for my sun design. Each of the rays are folded so that the pattern is on the front and the back. Since the rays are 3-D, you can see both sides.

The white words on the middle of my sun are rub-ons. I could just have drawers full of rub-ons, they are so easy to use and to place just where you want them


For my actual card base, I used a two sided paper by CutCardStock.com. I just love the bright yellow of the one side and the bright pink on the inside. Makes for a really fun card to open and it so fits my SUMMER theme. I did hand doodle around the outside edge on the front of the card with a white pen.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
