Sunshine on my shoulders
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 - firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
