You are my sunshine.........

Good Morning!!!
Today is the start of another challenge over at
It is Lynda's turn to choose and she went with
shaped cards and you must use flowers.
Well I have to admit I am not a big shaped card fan!!!
This was really a challenge for me.  I recently made
cards for Lauren and Kelsey so I thought I would make
Rach one. She is definitely my ray of sunshine so I thought
of the sun and her favorite color is yellow so I got this:

I had to put pink circles to tone down the yellow! LOl
I have also added alot of glitter which you can't see
in this pic! The sentiment I made up on my computer.

Here is a side shot.  I added some distress crackle paint. I wanted the
image fairly light and watercolored looking.  I also added some
butterflies with my MS punch.

Later I could not find the card.  When I put Rach to bed I found
it on her art display thingy we got from iKea. LOL  It is funny
because if she sees yellow on something she always assumes it is hers!
(here you can see all the sparkle. But it is only so definite because I
had to use the flash!)

Paper ~ Girls Paperie
Inks ~ distress inks
Accessories ~ Flowers and shabby ribbon ~ WOC
lace ~ Walmart, Image ~ Belles and Whistles.

Make sure to stop by the challenge blog and take a look
at what the rest of the DT did with this challenge!
It doesn't look like they struggled with it as much as I did! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all
have the most wonderful day!!!
