You bring sunshine!

I'm playing along with a brand new challenge today.  Since I love using dies, I had to find a little time to play along with The Cutting Edge Challenge #1 !

Here's the inspiration, provided by Jackie Rockwell.

I was inspired by those large circle in the background, first of all.  Yes...I did some stenciling, again.
Just had to, since I had so much fun with yesterday's card.  Click HERE to take a look.

I knew that I wanted to use summery colors.  So, after sponging on those green circles I looked for a soft blue to sponge a bit sky to go behind that photo frame.  I added 2 die cut clouds and then tucked in a tiny sun to compliment my sunshine sentiment.  That little sun is swirled with some clear Wink of Stella, just to add a little sparkle.
This was one of those cards that just flowed.  Don't you love when that happens?!?  So fun. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
