Sunday Sunshine

Happy Sunday, peeps! :) I am so sorry for my recent lack of blog posts. Sometimes the uglies of life steal away my crafty mojo, and I can't bring myself to whip anything up that even resembles something cute. I think things are on the upswing though. I had a lot of fun creating this card yesterday using the Anita Be Stampin Bears & Bunches cling mounted rubber stamp set!

I created the sun by punching a circle out and then adhering hand cuts strips of paper. No fancy die cuts needed for me, I guess! LOL Did you notice the Cotton Candy Divine Twine trimming the edge of the main image panel? I am so used to layering my images with Nestabilities, so the main image panel looked like it needed a little extra oomph without that trusty scalloped layer. I think that little bit of Divine Twine added just the right touch.

I missed the deadline on Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #100, which was sponsored by Anita Be Stampin, but my card was truly inspired by the cupcake inspiration photo above. The sketch used is from the super sweet Jen del Muro's SFYTT Challenge for March. I usually never try sketches that have the main image layer on an angle, but I just had to give this one a try. This card will also be entered in the Flutterby Wednesday(anything goes) and Cute Card Thursday(spring) challenges. I sure hope you like my card! :)

Hope your day is filled with sunshine!
