Hello, Sunshine! ( LSC # 59 - coloring)

I'mmmm back!! Today I wanted to share with you my submission guessed it - the latest Lawnscaping Challenge.  I will freely admit - I don't feel I am the best at coloring - but I sure do give it my best shot!

I really do love the "sun rays" look on cards and layouts, and I really hadn't created anything like it yet - so I thought I would break out some supplies that I bought intending to do this look.  I used a PTI die called " Beautiful Beads" - it is intended to help make your own jewelry, but I am using it for my "rays".  I used papers for Lawn Fawn's 6x6 Pink Lemonade collection.  I also die cut from some sookwang adhesive sheet a zig zag circle from this die set from Sizzix.  I then applied some Stardust glitter to give my circle some sparkle and I burnished it onto the circle. I adhered all the pieces of patterned paper onto my card base, then applied my glittered circle. 

I then colored the card base around the sun rays with Copic Marker B21 to make it look more like a sky.  I stamped the "hen" from "Critters on the Farm" from Lawn Fawn twice, once on the middle circle, then again onto white cardstock to give it some color and to pop it up to give it dimension on the card.  I then stamped one of the banners from "Bannerific" and stamped out a custom sentiment using "Harold's ABC's"

Here is a closer look.

Thanks for stopping by!!  Hope you all have a great weekend!!
