How About a Ray of Sunshine Today?

I am patting myself on the back right now for incorporating 3 of my favorite companies together to make today's card! (pat, pat, pat!) I used paper and a flower stamp from Noel Mignon's Sun-Kissed kit, a JustRite sentiment, and a Cutting Cafe' Sun Template! I printed the sun template and cut it out. Then I stamped JustRite's Seeds of Kindness (1 5/8) set in Black Momento ink. The butterfly was colored with Copics and the image was cut out using my Spellbinders. The edges were then inked with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in frayed burlap. The little flower stamp behind my JR sentiment was in the Sun-Kissed kit and is by Imaginence. I stamped it and cut it out to create an extra layer behind my sentiment.

I added a bit of ribbon and some cheery stick pins. The front of the sun opens up so that you can write a little somthin' somethin' in there! : )

Busy weekend ahead of me! I am teaching a crafty banner class in Evanston IL tonight. Tomorrow I have a graduation party and Sunday is Father's Day! Hope you have a sunshine filled weekend!!! : )
