I went very literal with my first card for the challenge.

brighter days

The background was made by sponging Tumbled Glass Distress ink around some Stitched Clouds cut from scratch paper.  A few large and small clouds are flanking the large sun.  I really wanted it to stand out, so I added Glossy Accents…making sure to set it aside to dry for a really long time!  I used the Instant Camera die to create a frame and an area to hold my sentiment.  Here’s a little secret…I really wanted to add some enamel dots, but didn’t have the right color.  I used nail polish to create the dots!  Fun, eh? 

While I was playing with the large and small sizes of sun dies, I thought how fun it would be to make a sun flower!  Here’s a fun little tag made with 3 of the large sun pieces and 3 small.  Each piece is put together with a super thin dimensional and fluffed with my fingernail.

The stem is made from a stripe stamp in the Mom & Dad sentiments set.  The leaves are made from the petal shaped stamp in Darling Diamonds.  Here’s a little close up so you can see the dimension

  That’s all I have for you here today!  Your next stop on this hop is Stamping Royalty – Amy Kolling

  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a super day!

Congrats! Love that card - as always, gettin' creative on us. Who else would have thought of nail polish? I actually find it more surprising that you have nail polish in that color ;>)

Oh my goodness! There is so much goodness in this post! I am loving your sun card, but I have to say that I think your tag steals the show! Not just the colors and the fabulous bloom you made but the creative way you've made the stem using LID stamps! That rocks!!!
Thanks, Alyssa!!
