H2H - Simple Sun Card

The theme this week at Heart 2 Heart is Hot, Hot, Hot!  In celebration of summer (which has actually taken a cool turn around here, ironically enough) I crafted this simple sun card:


I thought about embellishing it, but ribbon or more stamped images just made that beautiful blue sky look too cluttered.  So this design stayed clean & simple, which also made it relatively quick to put together - a nice bonus!


The sun is made with a 1 1/2" circle center, stamped with images from Dream Big and Connections on Sunny Yellow cardstock.  I then stamped the pennants from the Pennant Alphabet using Sunflower ink on Sunny Yellow and Sunflower cardstock.  The sky is...well, Sky cardstock, of course!  Last, I used the clouds from Around the Block and stamped them in Pacifica ink.  The sun is attached with foam tape.

The colors are more bright and cheerful than I was able to capture on this cloudy day.  Enjoy the rest of your day!
