Hello, Sunshine!

The Deconstructed Sketch has a fun, circular card sketch this week and I decided to play along using some MME 6x6 paper pads that I can't seem to get enough of lately. I've also been getting a lot of use out of the cute CTMH 'You Are My Happy' stamp set.  For this card, I used the sun stamp that I stamped twice, fussy cut (I ended up cutting out the dotted rays altogether), and paper pieced.  I coloured it with Copics and gave the sun some extra shine with Liquid Glass.  The clouds were punched out using a Fiskars cloud punch and layered with 3D foam tape.  The sentiment is from Verve's 'Artful Elegance'.  I had paper pierced the kraft layer, but thought it looked a little plain, so I decided to hand stitch it with some hemp twine.

Hope it's sunny where you are!
Thanks for looking :)
