Good Morning Sunshine


Sassy Cheryl's Challenge this week is "Bling In The Sun With a Sassy Cheryl Image".  The first image that came into mind was to use the Sassy Cheryl Personal Use stamp for my card.  I have used her many times before making her pop out of cakes and sunflowers, but this time it didn't work.  I tried cutting the face and upper torso in a circle, I tried fussy cutting the upper torso.  Nothing looked right.  So I decided to use a smaller Sassy and put the whole body out in front of a super duper sun (Ecco Park Paper Co, A Perfect Summer, 6x6 pad).  Wallah, the final results that soothed the inner turmoil in my demented crafters mind.  LOL.

Now to decorate the card and provide some balance.  I went to my LSS, Scrapbooks By The Sea and prowled the aisles looking for ideas for the sentiment.  I wanted to do a banner and I found these shaped pieces of mini  burlap by  "Canvas Home Accents".  I anchored one to the card with some coordinating bakers twine, typed up the sentiment and printed on regular printer paper.  I liked the look of fabric the paper made.  to "bling" it up. I found this delicious blingy flower and popped on the canvas for a shabby-chic look.  Finished the bottom off with a EK Success edge punch and called it complete.

This is my last time to enter the Sassy Cheryl Challenges for awhile.  I am so excited to announce that I have been chosen to be on their DT for the next 3 months. Next week I will post as a designer. So be sure and check back to see what my first DT card looks like.

In the mean time click here and check out all the awesome cards the DT has created to inspire you.  You can also see the list of the other lucky ladies that have been selected.  Do yourself a big favor and click here to pop into Cheryl's Digi Shop and see all the new creations.  I mean to tell you, this girl is in a design frenzy.  She is popping out masterpieces daily.  She is to the digi world what James Patterson is to the literary world.

Additional Challenges I plan to enter are:
