Sun Shaped Card (OCCC)


Hello there! I had made this card to submit to Paper Crafts, and it didn't get picked up :( Sadly, it's been one of a long line of disappointments this week; but I'm all good. Nothing that's critical, or terribly serious. I think the Lord is just trying to teach me to lean on Him. I'm sorta a slow learner, so I gotta keep learning! ;) LOL!

On a **good** and cheerful note, I had this card featured at Our Creative Corner last week. Spotted Canary showed this page on their Facebook feed, and my Circus K Cup Caddy was Pick of the Litter at TCP on Wednesday. I'm kind of a perfectionist.... and truly, need to work on not being so tough on myself! :) 

So, as a happy surprise to me, the challenge at Our Creative Corner this week is "Show Us your Shapes!" make a SHAPED card, since I had this one all made and photographed, I thought I would write a post and link it up. Do you like it? It's pretty bright, I like the happy rainbow, though I am **SICK** over the fact that I LOST the darling cloud die that coordinates with this rainbow die from Lil' Inker, so I had to use my MFT one. Which is also super cute, but I really LOVED the Lil' Inker one with the perforated edge! :( I'm thinking of asking them if I can just order a new cloud, and not the whole set. I did use the Lil' Inker stamp on the inside sentiment, though! :)

Have used my heart punch for sun's rays before, and I did that again. I am still not sure if this card would have been cuter/better had the rays gone all the way around the card instead of stopping at the fold? Well it IS fun and sunny! Hope you like it anyway :) Have a wonderful weekend! I got my new TCP order, so I'll be "playing" this weekend! 

Big hugs!! Noelle 

supply list: dies: Lil' Inker, MFT, Spellbinders; circle cutter: CM; heart punch: EK Success; DP: American Crafts (I think?) 

DUST IT OFF!: The paper was a scrap from this card for my stepdad's 70th. That circle cutter is 10 years old and I've had the heart punch and scalloped circle dies for a couple years, too. :)
