Reminder - Twofer Card Challenge #30: Sun/Moon

I hope you can join us this month for our Sun/Moon Twofer Card Challenge!  I chose to use a sun die cut from W+9's Sunshine Layers as my common element on both cards:
The first card is a non-traditional use of the sun die.  I layered two together to create flowers for an over all background design.  There are also raindrops in the set, so I used those for leaves.  The additional polka dots are also the sun's center.
The next card is an encouragement card and uses the sun for its traditional purpose.  The rainbow, clouds, and word are all die cuts from the same set as the sun.  I ink blended the blue panel for an ombre effect.
I hope you are enjoying a little sunshine wherever you are today, but if not, this last card is for you! 

Stamps:  W+9 Sending Sunshine
Dies: W+9 Sunshine Layers, SugarPea Designs Thanks, MFT Stitched Square Frames
Ink:  Catherine Pooler Stone Blue, Juniper Mist

Thanks for coming over to visit!
May the Lord bless you today!


  1. Kara, your cards are such fun. Loving the bright colors and happy feels just coming off your cards.

  2. So vibrant, bright and fun, Kara ... your scattered sunflowers are so warm and sunny ... and how sweet is the sun coming up over the rainbow! Yep, sunny here today ... and thankfully below 40C! Big hugs and bisous, Anita :)

  3. How cute, Kara! I didn't realize until I came over for a closer look and saw the leaves that your DSP was made of several sunFLOWERS rather than suns! And the leaves are made out of raindrops, no less! I love it and I love your cheery traditional sun playing with his buddies Rainbow and Clouds 9 and 6 in an awesome ombre sky! Cool stitching and frame, too! Miss you! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Clever use of your 'sun' flower Kara, these are both happy and cheerful designs and perfect for our sunny day here today!

  5. Oh so bright and fun! What a great idea to use the raindrops as leaves. And well... then there are those big polka dots... just sayin'!

  6. Sunflowers are perfect for this challenge. They are so pretty and cheerful and thank you for sending sunshine. We have had some overcast days in the mornings and it takes a while for the sun to appear.

  7. Just love both of your sun cards, Kara!! That layered sun as a flower looks amazing & how great to use raindrops as leaves?!! Fab rainbow card too - so happy!! Thanks for the inspiration at Twofer!!
