Rain or Shine : A theme challenge at the paper players

Hi there!

Sunday... and time for a new challenge at the paper players !

                                   

I picked sunshine, but you can use rain, sunshine, or both to inspire you!


You are my sunshine card


You are my sunshine card

To create my ombre background, I have die cut 5 rectangles from the PINPOINT rectangle set by memory box in 5 different shades of orange/yellow.

To that I added a Silhouette cut sunshine sentiment. I replaced the dot on the 'i' , with a small sun to which I added the words "you are my". 

I hope you will join the fun this week!

I am adding my link to Darnell's NBUS challenge over Here because it's the first time I use my pinpoint rectangle dies.


                                                  Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Also playing at Inkspirational challenges ~ geometric.



                                                   


... and at Less is more ~ Citrus colors

                                       We'd love you to display our banner



Thanks for visiting me today!

This is gorgeous! Those different shades on the rectangles look like the sun is warming up and they are perfectly placed. I just had to pop over to see this in more detail when I saw it on Darnell's challenge.
