Sending Sunshine - Daring Cardmakers

Happy Friday!

Today I have decided to treat you all to some sunshine as it is wet and miserable where I am.  Pure sunshine.  The type that stays and doesn't hide behind clouds as it seems to do a great deal here at the moment........

The sunshine is of course in aid of the Daring Cardmakers new challenge which has been set by Miri.  She has asked for any form of weather to go on your card and there is a lot of inspiration from my fellow DT members HERE.


I've gone through my scraps folder and chosen blue and white papers which I then die cut with my stitched border dies and formed a scene with the stitched sun peeking out.  I thought a gap card would work well with my design.

The sentiment is a lovely one, I'm sure you'll agree, and was a freebie with one of the last issues of Quick Cards Magazine before it sadly stopped publication. 

Have a wonderful weekend,
Shabneez

This is fab! At first sight I hadn't realized at all that there was a gap in the card - so clever :-)

Great use of the gap for your die cut sunshine Shabneez, fab card!

Your card is beautiful! The gap makes it super interesting to look at and the sentiment fits just perfectly.
