You are my sunshine !

Hi there!

This week's challenge at cas-ualfridays is sure to spark a lot of creativity!




The challenge is to choose a song you love, and make a card inspired by the song!

I chose a golden oldie for my first card, (not only because I LOVE the song, but also because I wanted to make a sunburst card for such a long time now!






I made  the background panel by coloring a piece of card stock with different shades of orange/yellow promarkers. The circle in the front panel was die cut, and the beams was cut with a craft knife and ruler after careful measuring. ( you know by now I LOVE to cut things up... LOL!!!)

The sentiment is one I created digitally,and as always, I share it with my visitors!



Please link back to my blog if you use it ? .... Thanks for being so kind!

And last but not least... take a moment to listen to a great classic!


 

Thanks for visiting me today!

I love this song Hannelie! Some of my little grandchildren sing it with grandma when we're together! And now, I have a wonderful picture to go with it! Your card! This is amazing, and I can't even begin to fathom how you made all those cuts. Wow. Super sentiment too. You are always so kind about sharing them. Have a great weekend. Bev
