Let The Sun Shine!

I'm really enjoying the improvement in our weather ... the sun is shining and the trees are gently unfurling their leaves ... suddenly colour is bursting out everywhere!

A few weeks ago, Jan our creator at Papercraft Star asked each of the designers to set a challenge ...
This week's challenge "Let The Sun Shine" is set by our lovely Allisa and it couldn't be more perfect!
Here's the lovely photo Allisa has provided for our inspiration


I made this card before I went away and it came in handy as I sent it to my husband's cousin who is still in hospital ... Just a little sunshine to cheer her up


I think that the Pink Petticoat digital papers were perfect for this card ... I love grey and yellow together ... 


My 'sun' is just a circle cut from cardstock which was printed first with the digital paper and then little banners were hand cut and glued around the back of the circle. I used PTI dies for the scalloped border and the 'hello" which I shadowed by cutting it twice ... once from black paper and once from patterned paper then glued them together but slightly offset the top one


The ladies at Papercraft Star are really looking forward to seeing your interpretation so come and join us!

And just to let you know - once the DT challenges are over ... there will be a change to future challenges ... There will be an inspiration photo for you and some suggestions ... but basically every challenge will be photo inspiration ... giving you plenty of scope to show us your amazing creativity ...
All the forthcoming challenges are up on the Blog ... so go take a peek!

Thanks so much for stopping by ... Have a great day and stay safe
