♥ Your Heart shines like the Sun ♥

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful day so far! This card is another one that I made for this week's Papercraft Star sketch. It is such a fun sketch, I had to make another! I am also using this week's challenge over at the City Crafter Challenge Blog. It is called "Let the Sunshine in" and it is to use a sun or the word sun on your card. I did both!


I first made my sun from twisting some yellow ribbon and then hot gluing it to a punched circle. I then added some glitter and a pearl and some ribbon rays. I printed the sentiment out from MS Word. And the papers are by My Mind's Eye called Bloom and Grow.

Here again is the sketch~


I was also inspired by the following challenges:

Crafts and Me Challenge Blog: Summertime 
Creative Belli Blog: Custom Made Bellies
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown: Fun in the Sun #57
Paper Playtime: Ch #50 Summer

Have a great night!

Hugs...
