You Are My Sunshine..

Greetings – thank you for visiting today.  
This was to have been posted last night, but the gremlins invaded Blogger and made it go super slow........

I loved this new image from McMahon Digital Stamps as soon as I first saw it and enjoyed making this card.... and I have been humming the tune too.

The image was painted with Twinkling H2Os.

The card base is a medium blue with a layer of bright pink over it, and then a bright yellow die cut. (Think, sunbeams)

I chose to fussy cut around the image and cut the printed string off, and punch holes and thread some narrow ribbon through them instead.  This was then mounted over the die cut and a few pearls added to finish.

Thanks for visiting – may your day be blessed.
