I came across the CAS Colours & Sketches #91 challenge the other day while surfing the web and decided the layout was perfect for a sunshine card!
I cut a strip of Whisper White CS, stamped the circle burst in Daffodil Delight ink, the leaves in stamped off once Wild Wasabi ink and the sentiment in black ink. Using an ink duster brush I applied Memento Cantaloupe and Tangelo inks to a scrap of Whisper White CS and punched out a 1 3/4" circle which I glued at the centre of the circle burst. After trimming the sun circle I layered the strip onto a black CS mat and glued that to the front of a 5 1/4" square white card base. I then glued on two stamped and punched butterflies and added rhinestones to the bodies.
Here's the inside and the envelope. I used a smaller circle (1 1/2") for the centre of the sun inside the card. What a happy card to make - friends, sunshine and butterflies - three wonderful things in life that bring joy!
