"Here Comes the Sun" ... a Color Blocking Challenge Entry

Pin It

Today's card project was created for Sharon's "Color Blocking" blog challenge. Since I had a veritable rainbow of brightly colored card stock scattered all over my work table from THIS project, it made sense to use more of these bright colors for this challenge. Plus, it saved me from cleaning up two messes ... this way, I only had to clean up one gianormous mess!

I used one of my all-time favorite stamps in this project; this smiling sun image is so cheerful ... it makes me happy just to look at it! I off-set the image slightly to allow room for my sentiment. And, from a design stand-point, it also makes for a much more interesting composition.

Using my scallop-edged scissors, I created a paper 'ribbon,' then tied the real thing over and around the card stock. I created a little 'bunny ears' bow and attached it using a mini glue dot.

A fast, fun, project that's colorful, cheerful, and promises that summer is on it's way!

Thanks for sharing part of your busy day with me!
