Soaking in some sun

No, not me! I was born tan, lol :D

This was a fun card to make! The sun came out better than I thought it would. This is my first time using my new Greeting Farm Anya stamp set "Rain Snow Shine." I also bought the "Miss Anya Collection" so you'll be seeing some more TGF stamps soon! I also got my Rubbernecker order (wow was it a a BIG order) so those will be popping up also. Gosh, I am seriously helping out the economy with purchasing all these stamps. That's how I like to think of it, at least :)

There's not a lot of embellishments on this card because I didn't know what to put! I should have cut up some circles for beach balls, huh? Oh well, next time!

This card is for a few challenges:
  1. Stampin' for the Weekend - for Challenge #5 Double or Nothing - I chose the first sketch
  2. The Corrosive Challenge - for Challenge #19 Summer Fun
  3. Flourishes - for By the Sea Challenge
  4. Die Cut Dreams - for Challenge #4 Corners and Curls - I curled the corners of the sun's rays!
Card Details
Paper: DCWV Fun in the Sun stack
Stamp: The Greeting Farm Rain Show Shine set
Tools: Cuttlebug, embossing folder, BIC-Mark It, Copics
