Hello Sunshine - at last !!


Well I am so glad to see a bit of sunshine that I just had to incorporate some into my card for my Guest design team spot at Pile it on this week.

This week we are sponsored by the fab Pizzazz A Plenty so our challenge this week is to add some sparkle to your sentiment - Say it in style !

I knew how I wanted this card to look but I just couldn't get the suns rays to look quite right. Then I found this fantastic tutorial video on K werner design that set me on the right track - thanks Kristina.
Obviously I changed it up a little (i've never been able to do as I'm told !) and spaced my rays out a little so you could see the blue sky behind x

Now as for the DP's that is a little tricky as I used mostly end bits from my scraps drawer but I think they are mostly basic grey and my minds eye papers from various paper packs - I love the mix of papers and patterns and the colour theme keeps them all tied and I think it works !

I used microsoft word to create the sentiment - perfect for my teenage neice's birthday and added some bling form stash x

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Ambers Crafts And Stuff - Try a new technique (sun rays template)
Simon Say's Stamp Challenge - Spring colours
Scrapbook Sisters - Use yellow (my fav colour at the mo !)
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything goes + additional something new
Tuesday Throwdown - Spring
Cute Card Thursday - Totally tropical
Do You Stack Up ? - Use yellow
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Spring has sprung
Craft us Crazy - Spring/Easter

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I love visitors !
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
