Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

It really is officially summer now! So I'm not going to let a cloudy day (make that two or three in a row, but whatever...) stop me from making a bright sunny summer card:


This card had already started to develop in my head when two challenges came out that gelled my ideas: Just Us Girls with a colour challenge to use orange, yellow and a neutral; and Addicted to CAS with a "sun" challenge. Even though that patterned paper actually has tiny flowers on it, I love that it almost hints at sand... okay, at least to me. A big yellow sun, bright orange flip flops and fun alphabet stamps made this a quick and easy card to put together. I don't know why the yellow "M" photographed so strangely... the shine of the clear embossing must have caught the light just the wrong way. 
It's also Anything Goes week at Simon Says Stamp, so of course I'm linking my card there, too. 
And while we're on the topic of challenges... there are still a few days left to break out the glitter and join our current Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge! 


Supplies: white, yellow & orange cardstock; My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Bluebell & Echo Park Dots & Stripes patterned paper, unknown alphabet stamps, Colorbox marigold & mango tango inks, Zing clear embossing powder, Lil Inkers flip flop, large sunshine & stitched rectangle mat dies, dimensionals
