I had the honor of picking the challenge theme this week at Papercraft Star. I am so ready to see the sun shine! In honor of the hopefully upcoming summer months, we want to see your creations featuring a sun!
I decided to make my card all about the sun! I picked up the super cute Sweet Surprises card kit off the while supplies last section, which featured the chipboard sun and treat cups. I went more with a shaker card by featuring coordinating beads. I thought of doing candy, but liked the idea of the beads for a fun look. My background was stamped with the Patterned Pennants stamp set. Super easy card to make!
You know I had to finish out the inside as well! While I normally add a strip of pattern paper to the inside of my cards….I created all of the paper on this card. I carried over the theme by staggering the pennant stamps along the bottom of the inside panel.

Z1731 Sweet Surprises Card Kit
