C4C289 Celebrate the Sun

Good morning friends!

It's Saturday, and that means it's time for a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges blog. Our June hostess is Danielle Lounds and here's her challenge this week: This time of the year the sun finally comes out in full force. To celebrate, include a little sunshine on your project. Sun images, lots of bright yellow or your favorite sun ray folder/die cut would all work.
I was looking through some patterned paper for a cloud print, and came across this piece with the printed stitched sun and embroidered hills. It was too perfect not to use, so I cut it down to make a card and a bookmark!

There are some glittery bits in the paper as well. This is a larger card,  and for the label I used the Katie Label Pivot die by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I also used my MISTI to align the stamp and then ink it a second time to make the orange nice and deep.

Here is a peek at the inside ...

Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge, and to get the information on our June Guest Designer. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C289.
