Sending You Sunshine

I am thrilled to be hopping with Taylored Expressions July Blast from the Past!  See the complete list of participants at the bottom of this post.  The theme is "Sending You Sunshine" and I have used the set called {Summer Afternoon} for my card. 

I inked up the circle frame with Daffodil Delight and then used a Pumpkin Pie marker to add some shading.  Thanks to my Quickie Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, I have some sparkly borders and accents on my papers.  {sigh - I love sparkle}  The designer paper is from the Echo Park Splash collection.

And with the pretty butterflies around the border, this is also my sample for Flutterby Wednesday!  We have an open challenge this week - anything goes as long as your creation has a butterfly, fairy or angel on it.  {wink}

Thanks so much for fluttering by and may your day be filled with Sunshine!
