I have a bright and sunny card for two challenges today. It was first inspired by the CASology Challenge: Sunbeam,
and then by the code word at AAA Cards: Friendship.
Hopefully the sunbeam won't disqualify the card for lack of white space at CASology. I see this as a CAS card, but there isn't much true white space. It was fun to make, regardless.
I recently purchased the MFT stencil "Radiating Rays" and was anxious to put it to use. I blended two Distress Oxide Inks--Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey--to create the sunbeam. It was, as often is the case, die cut with the Simon Says "Stitched Rectangle" die. Then I die cut a small circle with a Spellbinders die and stamped it twice, once with small rays and then the sentiment.
Both the rays and the sentiment are from Papertrey Ink's "Hello, Sunshine" set, and I chose the sentiment as it fit the Friendship challenge at the AAA Card Challenge. We're getting some much needed rain today, so this is probably the only sunshine we'll see.
