Hey Sunshine

Good morning Peeps,

It's Wednesday and you know what that means, yep, it's time to play at Karen's Doodles and this week it's a joint challenge with the theme of "In the Summertime". I decided to focus on the "Sun" as you will see from my card below and anyone who has a teenager will be familiar with the image I have chosen from Karen's new Teenage Doodles. Pop over and have a look, you will really be able to relate to them, lol! Click HERE to go shopping.

I have coloured the image using copic markers. I used string beads but cut them into the required lengths and coloured them with a copic marker to match my card. The flower looks blue in the photo but I can assure you its turquoise.  The template for the sun was from The Cutting Cafe, I printed it and layered it onto turquoise cardstock and cut around it to mat the sunshine.  I then added a bow, using my bow easy and there we go, simple!

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-
Pollycraft - Inspired By a Song - You are my Sunshine
A spoonful of Sugar - Sunshine Card
Quirky Crafts - Summer
Cute Card Thursday - Anything But a Square Card
Paper Play - Home (my card is with my daughter in mind chilling the back garden of our home)
