HELLO

Hey y'all! Today, I have a card a made for the new The Cutting Edge Challenge! I think is a pretty cool challenge, if you haven't checked it out yet, you really should! ;)


Okay, so just look at all the inspiration in those cards!!! At first, I was going with the whole 'cloud' thing again. And I did make a card with clouds, but really wasn't feeling it...Shocking, right?! lol So, back to square one I went. I did some thinking, and ended up with this!


Yep. I used a little PTI strip die (that came in a set I ordered) for the 'sun beams'. Then added my yellow paper behind it. After, I rounded all but one corner. Then, when I looked at it, I thought it needed something else. So, I used small little strips of yellow and added just a few more sun beams. And for my arched white piece, I used a circle die, though I only covered a portion of it. Once everything was put together, I added some gold sequins to top it off. Last but not least, after adhering to my card, I added my little banners. So, what do you think?!...


Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
