Summer sunshine!

Click HERE for this weeks SWEET Monday Challenge!
(The prize is bakers twine from the twinery!)

I love summer!  Here is a fun, Sun-Shiny card I made for DT day at Celebrate the Occasion.

The card base, cut at 5 inches, is from the Birthday Bash cartridge.

The fun papers are from an Echo Park pad (Thanks Ally!)

The sun was cut at 10.47 inches from the Wild Card cartridge and the blue circle is 3.55 inches real dial size. 

I used Lemon Drop Bakers Twine and the stamped sentiment is from Sweet Sentiments #2.

The cute face stamp is from Peachy Keen Stamps. I used glossy accents and lots of stickles (I may have overdone it!)

I am entering this card in the following fun challenges:

Getting Cricky - Face it!
Anything Goes - Here comes the Sun! 
Gimme a Break - Anything Summer

Have a happy sun-shiny day!
