Little Ray of Sunshine!!

Hello!!  Thanks for Stopping By! :) I had so much fun making my first challenge entry ever for the CARDZTV challenge, I thought I would try a few more!!

This card was so fun!!  I think I'm going to be addicted to challenges! :)

It will be entered in the following challenges:
Going Buggy July Challenge - Under the Weather
Peachy Challenge 25: Chalk it up.
July Cricut Chirp Challenge - 1 - A Smiling Sparkling Sun
Clear it Out Challenge - Anything Goes, use something yellow - Top 3 pick!! :0)
Make It Monday - Yeah!!! I won POTW with Rene for Challenge #97

 I created this fun little card for a couple of challenges. But before I get to that I have to send out a Big Thank You to CarolynG who had a small tutorial on how to create this fabulous sun in chalk!! I have never used chalk this way before but her card was soooo cute I just had to scraplift the idea!! Thank YOU Carolyn!!! If you have time, you should definitely go see her blog...she is awesome!

This card is 5x7
Sun is Chalked and  accented with a white gel pen and a Happy Little Peachy Keen Face!  I love these little faces and can't wait to get more stamps!!
Papers are from recollections and scraps I had.
The edges are chalked in yellow and lightly inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink-wild honey
The cuts are from the Preserves Cart
Ribbon is from the Michael's $1 bin.
Bling from Recollections
Sentiment was printed from my printer: Sege Script 14, AR CENA 18 (use center point to cut on your cricut)

And this is the inside...I love to decorate the insides and make matching husband says I'm OCD..but I just think it's more fun that way! ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you back soon!
