Here comes the sun

Good morning!!! It's a beautiful Saturday here in Massachusetts. The sun is shining and for once we are not getting that cold ocean breeze. I made this card a while back for a Paper Crafts sketch call. I love this card. It's just fun and it has one of my favorite songs on it by the Beatles.

here comes the sun2

The inspiration for this card was the KI Puffies. I had just got them in the mail and couldn't wait to use them. I created my card digitally first. Placing a circle where I wanted the sun to be and then manipulating the text I created the sun rays. I then printed it. I also created the inside of the card at the same time and printed it on patterned paper. I punched a hole in the card then punched holes to stitch the sun rays. I back-stitched the sun rays in with DMC floss. I punched some clouds, highlighted them with some Copics and then stitched the edge of the card.

Easey Peasy. I didn't use one stamp on this card. I am shocked. It's rare when that happens :) Off to plant flowers and veggies. Have a wonderful day.

**note: I am working on figuring out how to link all my product by thumbnail. Hoping to have it all done this week
