AIN'T NO SUNSHINE...

Hey there stampers, I'm back with another May Arts product swap card.  As soon as I saw the polka dot ribbon, I immediately grabbed Sunshine Cheer from Our Craft Lounge.  I absolutely love this set because of the super cute images and it's versatility.  I saw Croppixie's card in the SCS gallery and wanted to do something similar.  There isn't an awful lot to it, but I kind of like how it turned out.

Three sizes of Nesties were used to cut a frame out of white card stock and designer paper.  A border punch was used on the orange layer before it was embossed.  The images were stamped in black ink and colored with Copic markers.  The frame was popped up and the sun was cut out then tucked behind it. 
Spica pens were used on the hearts and sun so they shimmer and the charm was attached to the May Arts ribbon with twine.  While I was taking pictures, it hit me...I forgot the Glossy Accents on my ladybug friend...D'oh!  Of course, I had to stop everything and add some, right!?!  NOW my card is complete!  LOL!  I hope you stop back tomorrow for a little more summer fun.

In the mean time, head on over to The Lounge and May Arts Ribbon Blog to see what the other designers have been up to.  Don't forget...there are lots of chances to win some blog candy so don't forget to leave some love along the way.  It's easy...every day, leave comments on:
  • The OCL blog,
  • on each participating designer's blogs (the complete list can be found on the OCL blog), and
  • on OCL's Facebook page for a *bonus entry*.  If you "like" OCL on FB, you will get an extra entry if you let them know you did it.
