Hello Sunshine

This week's challenge at Less is More is 'Perfect Holiday'
I used the August challenge sketch over at
 Clair and Sharni Get Crafty! Facebook group for the design of my card.

A perfect holiday for me would always include some sunshine amongst a list of other things!
I used some double sided pearlised card to give the sunshine colour to my card, and
I pierced the border of the rectangle card using one of the four stitched border dies from Lawn Fawn.
The products I have used are:-
Lawn Fawn - Spring Showers and Stitched Borders
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles and Scalloped Circles
My Favourite Things/Die-Namics - Hello There

Challenges entered:-
Less is More - Perfect Holiday
Scrapy Land - Anything with a Die
Words 2 Craft By - Vacation
Make my Monday - Lazy Days of Summer
Crafty Gals Corner - Punches and/or Dies

Thanks for stopping by.
