Sunshine and Smiles
Here’s my mostly scrappy card for today’s SCS sketch challenge. It’s a kind of loose interpretation of the sketch, but I think it still works.
Instead of using a pair of circles layered in a staggered way, I used a large dotted circle and a smaller die cut sun. The dotted circle’s a blue on blue pattern to resemble the sky. I used the new sun die from Lil’ Inker Designs for my sun along with a felt cloud from Lil’ Inker’s Rainbows and Clouds set. I love the fun perforated detailing along the edges of the shapes! The sun's embellished with a matching button tied with a little baker's twine.
I set the circle and sun on a golden yellow dot embossed panel. A strip of chevron patterned paper runs across the bottom of the circle. I added the coordinating stamp set’s “wishing you sunshine & smiles” sentiment on a matching yellow panel at the bottom of the chevron strip. The panel is set on a kraft card base to bring in a little more of the neutral colors found on the patterned paper.
