PSC38:Here Comes The Sun

Hey everyone...welcome back for another FAB challenge with The Perfect Sentiment. I live in Oregon and right now as I'm looking out my window I see nothin but rain...sigh. So this week's challenge couldn't have come at a better time for me...Here Comes The Sun!! Hey...if I don't actually have sun where I live...I can at least create a card with some sunshine on it right?? *It was raining the day I typed up this post but now I see nothin but sunshine :-)

So your challenge for this week is to create a card with a sunny sentiment (you are my sunshine, you light up my life etc.) and for the twist-because you know we always have one..lol-is to include an image of the sun on your card.

Here's my card for this week's challenge.....
This week's challenge was slightly...well a challenge for me as I typically don't craft/create with mostly yellow colors. I don't even wear yellow...lol. But I really do like how this one turned out.
If you follow my blog reguarly you know that I am a Tim Holtz junkie so I was happy to finally use one of his texture fades. This one...appropriately named "Rays" fits in perfect for this challenge. I inked the embossed image with some Sunflower from Close To My Heart.
I really love this sentiment...it has such a positive note to it. Ok this is sorta off topic but have you ever watched the movie "The Miracle Worker" with Patty Duke and Anne Bancroft? I have..many times...I love classic movies. Anyway I kept thinking of this movie while making this card since Patty Duke plays Helen Keller...it's a wonderful inspirational movie so check it out if you haven't already. Ok...jumping back on the crafty train...



I wanted to carry the sunshine ray theme/feel into the inside...
Here's a better shot of the "sunshine" bling...
