Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 203-You Are My Sunshine

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! There's just a little bit of stamping on the cheery design I created using this week's sketch.

I turned the sketch's large round panel into a sun, made with a pinking edged circle topped with a piece of orange striped patterned paper.  The round panels are adhered to a light blue panel.  I topped it with a blue dotted patterned paper strip and a bright yellow fishtail flag strip.

For the sentiment, I die cut the word "you" using Avery Elle's Word Fill in the Blank dies.  I arranged the letters on the round panel, just above the yellow fishtail flag strip.  The "are my sunshine" sentiment from the coordinating Fill in the Blank stamp set is stamped on the yellow strip in teal pigment ink.  Love how these Luxe inks work on colored cardstock!  I added a trio of white sequins around the words for a little sparkle.
