Summer Sunshine

Fall is my most favorite time of the year but I do love that Summer sun! This week is Monochromatic week at Dynamic Duos #26 which means the same color in different hues. The colors of choice are So Saffron and More Mustard. I thought I could make a fun sunshine card with these colors!

I tried the Starburst technique several weeks ago and loved the outcome. I thought, "Why not make a SUNburst?" I used So Saffron DSP and More Mustard card stock. You can see HERE the instructions on the technique on the blog, Handmade by Julie. I used the Wood grain Impressions Folder to give the More Mustard Sun rays a little more texture. I punched the sun from So Saffron Card stock with the 1 3/8 circle punch. I sponged More mustard to add some dimension. I also sponged on the edges of the card face. I found the perfect sentiment in Pursuit of Happiness.
Check out all the great inspiration from the Dynamos and join in on the fun!! This is my last week as a Guest Designer. It has been so much fun and I have enjoyed working with this amazing team!! Thank you so much Dynamos! :)
