Your Own Sunshine

Good morning!!!  Today's card is for the first Verve Beach Party challenge this week.  Like some of you, I never seem to do a series of challenges in order.  I pick the one that I like the most at that moment.  These colours scream "Beach Party," don't they?  I kind of knew what papers I wanted to use, although making the final decision took some time (sort of like finding the right buttons! LOL).  I really wanted to  use this sentiment and ink up one of the fun little suns in the Verve set "Let it Shine."  I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch...I hope you can tell!!  The circle kind of floated up to the left hand corner and the horizontal panel kind of stretched out a bit, but it's all about inspiration, right?  And Karen is so sweet, I know she won't mind :D  I hope you are all having a bit of sunshine where you are...or if not, feeling the sunshine of my little card :)

What's in it?
Stamps: Verve feel the sun, let it shine
Ink: versafine onyx, SU pumpkin, mustard
Paper: PTI cream, springmoss, SU pumpkin, kiwi kiss, burmuda bay, DCWV dp, Michaels dp
Accessories: gemstones, ribbon, corner chomper

Way to go on this colour challenge, Maureen. I went for the Bold Brights on mine (to be posted on Friday). Love the rounded corners you used - must remember to so do as it give is such a nice touch.

Believe it or not, I got the the Verve challenged done yesterday! Four cards in one day is an all time record for me. Guess the challenge of having a crazy busy week was not to be an excuse for not getting them done LOL! Today we shift to making and decorating three cakes for the cake walk at the school carnival this Friday. Then an all out assault on mass producing about 300 Mother's Day cards - ugh. Have a great day :D

Maureen- this is gorgeous, love the colors and the designs on the DSP.

The border punch is one of MS and I got it in a pack: border/corner at Michael's. Love it b/c it just makes the most beautiful cards like that.

Awesome job as usual. What a great job of the color challenge! Another fabulous job on Karen's sketch, too. You are the queen of challenges, Maureen. Love that sun especially....I think I'm going to use it as a little fleur for something soon. =)
