Sunshine and flowers

still not managing to find as much time to craft as I'd like - still decorating and catching up with chores.

This is another card for the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge Blog, which has the theme of the Summer Solstice which is in June. I made it basically using Tonic dies and yellow, gold, green and blue card stock from Tonic, plus Limetree Crafts Poppy red card and Anna Marie Amber Sparkle card. I used the Tonic Sunray Window die to cut in gold and yellow card, then used the yellow as the base which I layered on to blue card for the sky and green for the ground. I then paper pieced using bits from the yellow and gold die cuts. I cut a narrow frame in green and layered it on top then layered it all on to the amber sparkle card.

The centre piece is the middle of the Sunray Window in gold matted on to amber sparkle with and amber sparkle circle in the middle. I added this to the centre using foam pads to give some added dimension.

The white flowers are cut using the different size dies in the Tonic Entwining Trellis Daisy die with a yellow brad in the middle. The red poppies are cut in the same way using the Bellus Buttercup die from the same set with a black brad in the middle. I finished it off with a few flourishes cut from a pale green card using the Frond Finesse die.

I hope you like it, please join us in the Fairy and Unicorn challenge this month.
