*whew* I almost missed it!

So Papercraft Star lets you sneak a peek at their upcoming challenges... and when I saw this one in the lineup, I thought of an idea right away. AND THEN I nearly forgot to post it in time! There are 12 hours left in the linky, so *whew*!
 There's the inspiration photo - and the challenge is to include a sun in your creation: "Let the Sun Shine."

I got a little collagey:

Supplies: papers from MME; sun stamp from Market Street Stamps; Mustard Seed distress ink; buttons from stash; Yellow Daisy glimmer mist from Tattered Angels; ruler washi from Jen!

I've fussy-cut a bunch of the tags from a sheet of paper, and I left the end attached to some of them - the yellow striped bit. I liked the rough edge left from tearing it out of the pad. I did the yellow stitching (using floss & my handy dandy Tim Holtz ruler), stamped the sun, added everything...and then decided to flick the mist. That was nerve-wracking since I've ruined more than one card the same way, but *whew* once again, it worked!

I just bought some MME papers I found on sale yesterday. It is a gorgeous line of paper, always. I love how this card turned out. It is definitely a cheery one!
