i've got sunshine

i have been lucky enough to have a little down time with work (we're usually go-go-go and don't stop ever!!!!! lol!). but for some reason, we're a little slow, and that means more fun time for me! :) so i'll take it while it lasts! :)

last night, i made a card for the current CAS(E) this sketch challenge! i love this challenge blog!! but this week, i have to admit, it was hard for me. i don't know why exactly, but i was finally able to come up with an idea that i liked with the sketch! :)

so i took the sketch and rotated it about...45 degrees (according to my engineer husband). here it is:

it's ok, right? maybe not stunning, take your breath away, but i'm happy with it! :)
i used some gold embossing powder to create the sun 'rays'. then i stamped the sentiment over that with some black staz-on ink. oh yeah, all of the stamps are from mama elephant's sunny skies stamp set. love that one! :)

then i added some enamel dots (to emphasize the rays, of course) and popped up the whole grey panel onto some black cardstock. fun! 

so that's it! :) i'm off to the beach with my little menn (love love love love love the beach). i'm sure to get some inspiration (and rays!!) there!
