You Are My Sunshine

Hi and welcome to my blog. Last week we had some beautiful sunny days. I am wishing they are still here since it has turned cold and rainy again! I made this card as a reminder of those sunny days!

I used my cuttlebug rays embossing folder for the background. I sponged on Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Ripe Persimmon Distress inks. I also added Sparkle N Sprinkle Lemonade glitter to some of the dotted areas in the rays. You can see the sparkle better here.

I used the Cheery Lynn Lattice Valance Border die and cut off the ends of the die to make the swirls. I also pop dotted some of the grapes at the bottom of the mouse.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
