'You Are My Sunshine'

Yeah, I'm back!! LOL This card I made for sketch #9 over at where this week Sherri's theme is 'Pretty Pastels'. The recipe is to follow the sketch, use pastel colors, add a Cricut cut sentiment and add at least 1 button. I must be in this 5 X 5 card mode! Cut the cardstock 10 X 5 from white cardstock. I rummaged through my store of papers to find something in pastels. I think I might have succeeded. At least I hope so!! I found this striped paper that I used for most of my front. Three 1/2 inches to be exact. Then I cut a yellow piece at 1 inch and then the lime piece at 3/4 inch to go on top of the yellow. I then used this piece with the green pattern on it for the top piece. Cut it at 1/2 inch. The white piece behind the sun is cut at 3 X 2. The sun I cut from Just Because Cards in yellow. I used some Shimmer Chalk on it to give it a shiny finish and also around the outer edge of the white piece. The Sentiment I cut in orange from Gypsy Font, welding each word. Used these yellow and orange polka dotted buttons I've had for a while. On the inside I put a sun and the word 'Sunshine' with an orange bling for the 'i' dot. I used the paper w/green pattern for the back piece on the inside and the lime on top. Come join the fun! You have until 11:59 Wednesday 7/21 to enter.  Hope ya'll like my card! :)
