Impression Obsession DT Challenge: You Are My Sunshine

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a sunny card.

Instead of using sunny colors, I created a sunburst background using scraps of paper from my stash. Each scrap was cut into a long rectangle, then cut from corner to corner to create long triangles. I glued the triangles onto a white rectangle base, then trimmed off the excess around the edges.

Die sets I used:

  1. Wowzers!!! Prettiest Sunburst I have ever seen and oh my word, what cute pups!

    Thinking of you!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Cute card Dina. Creative way of using different papers to represent sun rays and leaving the foreground white. Much better effect than coloring the foreground. Beautiful.

  3. Very pretty! Love the sunburst background you created!

  4. If blue is your color, Then blue brings sunshine to your heart. Love the idea, and soft touch of puppies.

  5. Very pretty card! So nice for Spring, I really like it!

  6. It's a lovely sunny card ! I love the colors and the little dogs !

  7. Different and very cute. Like the idea of the blue shades. And the fence and dogs is a nice touch. Edna

  8. Dina, I hope you do not think my comment is inappropriate as I know the theme is sunshine. Several of my friends have elderly dogs. I am always on the lookout for sympathy cards that I can make for the families when the time comes and they lose their beloved pet. I love this design and thank you for your inspiration.

  9. This card is adorable and stunning at the same time!
