Sunshine Thanks - MDSM60

I was a bit nervous about creating something with this sketch I found on the MDS Monday blog (MDSM60).  You may view the challenge, and all the cards created with it here: 

But, after I started playing with it, changing colors and papers and such! I had some fun with it!  I really like the end result too.

Along with the sketch, the challenge asked us to re-color some embellishments on your page/card.  I chose to re-color the circle embellishment (inside the sunburst)...the decorative edge was green....and I changed it to Black.  Also, the sentiment itself is an embellishment (in the Hooray of Parties Kit)... it was gray with the flowers being different colors -- and I changed it all to be white.

Thanks ladies for an exciting challenge!

Supplies Used - My Digital Studio software, Stampin' Up!
Background - Textured Cardstock (Daffodil Delight)
Punch - Square (filled w/Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP #4); Flag (filled w/ Whisper White and Basic Black); Sunburst (filled w/Daffodil Delight); Circle (filled w/ Basic Black)
Embellishment - Christmas Jingle (circle label - recolored Basic Black); Hooray for Parties (sentiment - recolored Whisper White)


  1. I think your card turned out great Diane, and I wouldn't have guessed that was the same embellishment! it looks so different and bold in black. thanks for joining us at MDS Monday!

  2. The pattern and solid combination is very striking! I love the starburst punch-out shape... perfect for the sketch. Thanks for joining MDS Monday this week.

  3. ooohhhh I love this! Bold and bright colors. Great work!
