One More for the Papertrey Ink 7th Anniversary Challenges

I was hoping to get a bit more crafting time this afternoon, but was only able to make one card before heading out to run a few errands.

Once again I paired a color combination and sketch from Day 1 of the Papertrey Ink 7th Anniversary challenges.



As I looked through my cardstock scraps I found a couple of pieces of Summer Sunrise and Orange Zest Hello Sunshine die cuts. I cut a few more and arranged them on a circle base.

Once the circle of rays and green ground were all adhered, the entire panel was embossed at an angle.  I'm loving that Michael's now carries Lifestyle Crafts Embossing folders and am slowly building my collection.

The Pure Poppy sun is embossed to match the rays and popped up with foam adhesive.

A Hello Sunshine senitment is heat embossed to finish the card off.

Thanks for stopping by,
