FCCB - New Monday Challenge !! x

 Happy Monday Ladies !!

This is a scheduled post and I'm hoping the sun is with us...(finally)...if not...(most likely in the UK)... then the fantastic creations by the FCCB Design Team are sure to brighten up our day. 

Please come and visit us for our new challenge #120 "Sunny Days"
"Make a project using a yellow sun"

The challenge runs from 0800 Monday till 2400 Sunday - US Mountain Time (Still struggling to get my head round the time difference lol !!)
My sun has got his "glasses" on!! 
He was cut using the Simply Charmed Cartridge at 6" and layered up using Pinflair glue gel to give him some definition and depth. He is attached to the finished card using a Docrafts spring to make him wobble. 
I cut an 8" rectangle frame using the Elegant Edges cartridge, stuck it on the front of a double sided piece of  lilac/purple A4 card and then made the fold. Because the back is thinner than the front,  I evened the card blank up with various strips of matching paper-to keep it stable as well as pretty!!
I used a "border cut" to match the front at 1" and "fit to page". The strips of paper are cut using a postage stamp blade on my trimmer.
I cut some 1" baby sun's, added buttons and some purple twine to embellish along with some star gems. 
 The back is as jazzy as the front lol !! The papers are part of a Creative Imaginations Scrapbook kit.

Sunny wishes for a fantastic week which ever part of the world you are visiting from...
