Sunshine Birthday! CCMC311

Today we have a fun sketch over at Create with Connie and Mary, CCMC311; I eagerly gathered up some new catalog products to use for my challenge card this week!

This sun is so bright and sparkly, thanks to the new Gold Glimmer Paper, love it!  I diecut it with a Starburst Framelit (second from the smallest) then added the sentiment from the new Ray of Sunshine set stamped in Tangelo Twist (new In Color) on Hello Honey and punched it out with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch.

The grid paper background is from the Moonlight DSP Paper Stack;  I stamped it with the sunburst stamp in the new Kinda' Eclectic set, used strips of other DSPs from the same pack for the two banners, then layered the sun on top. 

The two petite butterflies are from the Kinda' Eclectic set also; I cut a very narrow piece of the Gold Glimmer Paper and adhered it to the butterflies for the body.   I punched a 1/4" circle to add to the bottom of the sentiment layer.  Pretty simple once I figured out what to do!  I think I know just the person to whom I'm going to send this sparkly greeting!!

Inks:  Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey
Paper:  Moonlight DSP Paper Stack;  Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White cardstocks.  Gold Glimmer Paper

I am so anxious to receive this stamp set at convention next week. I've put off purchasing it just because we are getting it for free. Love your card!

Very bright and cheerful! I love how the wavy yellow paper behind your greeting looks like sun can almost feel the heat! Great card.
