You Are My Sunshine

     This post is all about the new challenge starting today at QKR Stampede with a theme of "You are My Sunshine," -- we want to see a sun on your cards.  It doesn't have to be in your image, just so there's something representing the sun in your design.  This stamp is "11401 Picking Flowers" by QKR Stampede.

     The fun part about this week is that each of the Designers has used the same image and you can't believe how different all the cards are!  Check out the QKR blog to see what I mean. Click on the link up in the first paragraph to get there.

     This time I colored with Copics because I have better yellows in my Copics collection.  The die cuts around the image are done with dies from QuicKutz and the sun is done with dies from Spellbinders.  I embossed the sun pieces with my 'Linen' folder.  The ribbons I used to tie the bows were both in my scrap stash.  The glittered flower is a die cut negative - the piece that falls out when you use the die.  The flower and the bow are the only embellies so the card is CAS despite the diecuts.

     I hope we're going to see you playing along in our "Sunshine" challenge this week.  Remember, you don't have to use a QKR Stampede image to enter but if you do, you'll be entered into a separate drawing just for QKR users and that significantly increases your chances of winning some wonderful new digi stamps.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  18. What an absolutely charming card you've created! I really like the way you added your own sun to accent your central image. The two look great together and the color palette you chose was so original! I also really like the two ribbon bows you added right next to each other with a flower on top. Great combination of patterns and fun elements! Thanks for sharing this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
