You are my sunshine

Here is a bright sunny card for you ladies! Although we are in our winter down here in the Souther hemisphere but for some strange reason we have just had 2 days of the winter temperature hitting 19-20 degrees centigrade which is around 68 degrees fahrenheit (spelling?) so that is very warm for us so I think this card is quite appropriate for us at the moment!

I love making these rosette flowers out of my petite scalloped circle dies at the moment - I can't get enough of them! below is a close up of them along with my hand made buttons.

I enjoyed making this card from alot of different branded papers and using lots of different components - I must admit I did have to measure out everything so that it would fit in on a card! The sun is made from a circle and the sun rays are made using a primitive heart punch and trimming off the bumps. My buttons are all hand made using patterned paper so it coordinates with everything!
materials - American Crafts white cardstock; MME Stella & Rose 'gertie', 3 Bugs in a Rug 'lazy summer', MLSB 'farmers market' papers; Daisy bucket 'sunshine', Hero Arts 'be happy' stamps; Stazon black ink; Dies - Spellbinders petite scalloped circles, MFT flat bottom clouds, Cuttlebug circle dies, Carl punch 10mm circle and primitive heart.
I have made this card following the sketch from Sketch Saturday, I am submitting it for the challenge over at Paper Sundaes - clouds and skies and Paper Playtime - summer. I have incorporated buttons for the challenge at Designed 2 Delight - at least 3 buttons.
Thanks for looking and have a great week.
