Sunshine on my shoulders

Here is a card I made for the Jitterbuggin' Challenge.  The rules were use complimentary colors - I chose purple/yellow.  Use a cricut flower - I used the sunflower border cut from Walk In My Garden.  Lastly, follow the sketch and add a ribbon (creme and brown spotted).  I also inked all edges in Stampin Ups Close to Cocoa.  The paper is basic grey and Stampin' Up.  I should add that I learned a little something about basic grey paper and my Cricut - I have much better luck if I turn the pressure down to a three.  Otherwise, the paper tears a bit.  Here's my take on the sketch - the importance of the card though is the sentiment for me.  I used to listen to John Denver when I was a child.  My mom had a number of his records and I just loved to sing and dance to these while home with mom during the summer.  It's a great childhood memory - so when I found this saying, the rest just fell into place.  I did this on my Gypsy - so if you would like the file, let me know -  Don't forget to check out the Jitterbuggin' Challenge - join in, and when she gets a 100 followers someone will win a prize.  I also entered this into Pollycraft's Challenge - check it out.

  2. This card makes me happy, Melissa! So pretty and bright. I was a HUGE John Denver fan and one of the best concerts I went to at Michigan State was his. (Of course I was just a child then too. LOL) xxD
