Sunny Days!

I love summer, (except for the heat and humidity LOL).  So I really wanted to take part in Canadian Nickel Scrap'n "Summer Vacation" challenge.  I already made a vacation themed card so I didn't want to go that direction and I thought of flowers, sunshine and bright colors for summer. This is what I came up with. 

Sunflowers cut from Walk In My Garden ...Sunny Days cut from Create A Critter and I think the sun also came from CAC.  I added some googly eyes to the sun for some character and drew in a smile lol.  I inked around all the cuts and the background paper with Martha Stewart cats-eye inks (clearance at Walmart for $6, set of 6 I think). Kraft cardstock for the card base cut to fit a business sized envelope (9x4).

Have a great Sunday!
