A Little Sunshine

Hello Everybody!

I hope you had a super terrific Holiday!  I did!  It was great spending it with family and eating delicious food!  I got some pretty cool gifts too.  And you know they are scrappy goodies!  So I will be sharing those with you guys over the next few weeks.

Right now I want to share with you a card I made for Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges: SNSSC14.  Here's my take on the sketch.

I am also submitting this card to Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes!

I used stamp set 158 Tropical for the sun and palm tree.  I stamped the sun on acetate once, then reinked and moved the flames a little to make more flames on the sun.  I used Stickles orange and yellow to make the flames glittery.  I used a light green Stickles for the palm tree and gold Distress Stickles for the trunk.  The background paper is from Fancy Pants.  The sentiment is from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blossoms set.  I used Faded Jeans Distress Ink to stamp it.

Here's the sketch.  Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...have a happy day! :)
