You Are My Sunshine - Sophie Cricut Cartridge, The Paper Shelter

Hi Everyone!

My mom recently won a challenge that awarded her some digital stamps from The Paper Shelter.  Oh My Goodness, we didn't know that website existed but their digital stamps are absolutely beautiful.  They are the type of digis that I love to work with so if you've never visited that site, here is the link: THE PAPER SHELTER.  You'll find something that you like, I'm sure!

For the card I made today, I used the Funny Sunflower digi.  I just love Sunflowers - they make me think of Spring and Summer.  I colored two of the same digi with the following Promarkers:

Flower - Sunflower (HA), Gold, Tulip Yellow, Orange
Butterfly - Amethyst, Purple
Stem/Leaves, Grass - Pear Green
Snail - Soft Green
Lady Bug - Red, Cool Grey 4

I cut the face off the flower out so that I could pop it on top of the other face for dimension.  

I used my Cricut Expression to cut the Yellow cardbase using the Sophie Cricut Cartridge - Card 2 on Page 48.  I cut the card to the dimensions of 6.5 x 10.  I mount the digi to yellow chalkboard paper and then attached it to a piece of blue woodgrain cardstock.  I tied ribbon around the blue cardstock and hung a flower charm from the ribbon.  I also cut another piece of blue cardstock and attached to the inside of the card to show through the flowers on the side of the card.

I think the card turned out really cute and can be used for a Birthday Card, Just Because Card, or a Get Well Card.  Thank so much for stopping by today - we appreciate your visits and your comments.  Please stop by tomorrow - Mom has been playing with vinyl and you will LOVE what she's done to her machines.  She's going to make something for my machines too (HINT, HINT)!!  

Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna
