This card uses a piece of patterned paper that I got at a crafty garage sale. I had, coincidentally, cut the sunshine out last week when I had to re-install Cricut Craft Room on my computer after the virus/reformatting debacle and was testing to make sure it worked using Smiley Cards. I sat it aside in my "die-cuts I didn't end up using" bin, and so when I saw this challenge, I knew I could use it! I cut the cloud sentiment from Create a Critter. I never remember that those sentiments are there, but they're so cute! This one had a little bird originally on top of the cloud, but I messed him up when I was trying to draw his wing on in gel pen, so I cut him off.
I figured since this was a Stickles challenge, I really wanted to sparkle it up. I used Candy Cane Stickles on the sun's cheeks, tongue, and the word Hello. I also used Orange Peel Stickles on the sun. I can never believe the difference that a little sparkle makes. I need to use my Stickles more often. This picture was taken while the Stickles were still wet, so the sentiment is flatter now that they're dry.
I'm entering this card in the following challenge:
