Birthday Sunshine

Mornin' y'all!  It's funny to me that I have a sunny card to share and we're supposed to have thunderstorms all day today.  :D

I busted out the June Paper Pumpkin kit for the sun die-cut (it already had that beautiful watercolor and the gold on it!) and the "sunshine" stamp.  I still don't use nearly as much of the Paper Pumpkin kits as I should but at least I'm using some of them?

Anyway, I'm entering this card in a new-to-me challenge called Festive Friday:

I did a CAS design, single image (the sun), and a birthday theme.  I wish I'd been able to play along with the National Orange Blossom Day challenge, but I enjoyed this one too.

I chose the sun to fit in with the Global Design Project theme challenge: 

Although looking at the design team's cards, you'd think the theme was cocktails ;)

I also used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:

For the rectangular layer, I scribbled on an acrylic block with a Coastal Cabana marker, spritzed with water, and stamped it on my card base.  Simple, easy, quick, and the result reminds me of a swimming pool.

Okay, kiddo wants me to go watch Brave with him.  I think his favorite character is Morddu, the demon bear.  Ha!  Cheers, y'all.

Supplies, all SU!
