Let's Go Play! In the sun!

Are you ready for another challenge from the Papercraft Star?  With summer in full bloom our challenge this week is to create a project which includes a sun.  Easy right?  Our talented design team have created some real beauties today, including our newest member Steph!  Steph has created a super fun card which you can check out on her blog "Where did all my money go".  Our spotlight designer Sylvia has also done a wonderful job using images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay, and is one you'll want to see. For my card I chose an image from THATB digital sheet 192.  I framed it using a tag from Graphic 45's Romantique collection.  The base is buttercream cardstock from Taylored Expressions which I matted some gingham paper from October Afternoon.  The sun was stamped on shabby polka dots 182  digital sheet from our sponsor with a Verve stamp and fussy cut.  I then popped it up and added a Jenni Bowlin butterfly in the opposing corner.  That does it for my card, now it's your turn to let your sun shine!  Just link up your project by Monday 6:00 a.m. EST for you chance to win some digital images from The House Across The Bay.  I look forward to seeing some sunshine!
