Sunshine!

Good Morning from sunny Aberdeenshire.

I hope you are all getting the good weather.

This week Chrissie & Mandi have set a real challenge for us over at Less Is More.  This week we have to create a 'shaped card'.  Eeeeek, way out of my comfort zone so I'm afraid to say I have taken the easy option.  While out enjoying the sun yesterday I asked Jamie for help in what kind of shaped card to make.  His suggestion was make a sun.  So this is my take on the sun!




Supplies Used:
Stampin Up - Sincere Salutations
Sizzix embosslits - Beautiful Wings
Frost white paint to create the mother of pearl look on the butterflies
Inkdusters and sponges to create the coloured band.

I am away to sit in the sunshine again before it leaves us.

Hope you all have a nice weekend.

Thanks for visiting
