A little bit of sunshine?

Okay, maybe I didn't see the sun out today....

But, I did make a card with a sun on it..... Does that count?

This card could be submitted to this week's challenge over at Crafting with Deedee's Digi's....
I know I can't since I am on the DT, but thought I'd throw out the challenge for all my faithful followers....

The image was cut out, as were two extra clouds and added in two layers to give real dimension to the card.  I inked up the sides of the sentiment and freehanded some bling around the card.  The background was hand stamped - I used a fourth cloud to ink around in three different shades of blue.  I have to add that IRL, it is a much better looking card!

Thanks for stopping in today.  I have a special surprise planned later in the week with some very special friends, so I hope you keep checking in......

Huggz,
April

April, I'm so glad you got a little sunshine, even if you had to make it. ;-) Love your sweet, cheery card. The extra clouds and swirls are so fun -- definitely a ray of sunshine in my day -- thank you for sharing it!
