Sunshine card

Hi peeps. Hump day!! Only two more days of being on pins and needles before we can find out about who's going to the Top 15. LOL. Have you vote? There's tons of inspirations at the Gallery Idol. Go here to get inspire & vote! And I just want to say I love my brothers so much! Their encouragement & support means the world to me. I adore them & love them to pieces. :)

Last night, I was struggling a bit. Wasn't feeling very creative. I started with making card for Hero Arts color layering challenge, messed that one up. Started another one and again messed that one up. I started to get frustrated, so I switched gear. Trying to save this poppy that I already stamped.

I ended up creating a card using Mojo Monday sketch for this week. And, I loved, loved this cheerful card. Granted, at first, I am debating whether to follow the sketch exactly. I have problem of mounting anything slanted. I like things straight. So, at first, after I glued it slanted, I kind of move it back to straight, then finally told myself to break out of my mold and just do it slanted. :) Entering this for Paper Play Challenges as well.

I love the graph background. I think the symmetrical of the lines mix well with the cheerfulness of the smiling sun. And that graph paper somehow reminds me of elementary school, of younger days. I don't know how to explain it. This card simply makes me happy. I ended up taking it to work, just so I can look at it and feel cheerful. Below is the close-up of the card.

Lots of yummy sparkly goodness on this card. I sprayed the sun with perfect pearl, so it glistened just like real sun. Created the pink graph background using Stampabilities stamp, then I stamped the poppies on top of it and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils. Popped some of the poppies with pop-dots and added glitters with Stickles.

Hope this card makes you smile as well. Have a great Wednesday everyone. Hugs, Vera.

Love this, Vera! And I love visiting your blog and reading your posts! I often times bring my cards to work too, so I can show my friends there, and get their opinions. Your card is beautiful, and I'm glad you decided to slant the main image! Looks fab! Love the glitter on the poppies! :)
