Something Sunshine-y

This wonderful, sunny creation was inspired by the fabulous Jaydee.  A while back, she posted this card and I fell in love.  Daffodil Delight paired with Basic Black?  "Medallion" stamp? Sunshine?  Yup, all three things I adore and I was ready to CASE it the moment I saw it.

Alas, I had to get through the piles of Christmas cards and tags that needed making.  Finally, I was finished with all that, and then I couldn't find the time to get in the studio.  Crud. 

Then, Jaydee posted THIS on her blog, and I knew I had to make the time to get in and make the card--not so much for a chance to win the blog candy, but because the cards are going to such a worthy cause. 

Besides, it was a CASE challenge, and goodness knows I've had this card just sitting in the back of my brain for goodness knows how long (since December 8, maybe??) and I was ready to do it.

I sincerely wish I had the "Wishing You a Day Bright With Sunshine" sentiment, and will now be searching for it.  I did the best I could with the sentiments I had available.  (As an aside, anyone else out there think they have plenty of sentiments and then see one they just have to have?) I'm pleased as punch with the results. :o)

I used the Eyelet Border Punch on the inside to mirror the lacy look of the Medallion stamp.

This card uses:
Stamp Sets: "Medallion", PTI's "Signature Greetings"
Papers: Basic Black, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, "Sunny Garden" DSP
Inks: Daffodil Delight, Staz-On Black
Accessories: rhinestones

Rach, it is gorgeous. I love the expanse of white - and just the touch of black! It really is gorgeous. I also love the spots and the way you did the inside. I think it's "fabulous". I'll find the name of the sunshine sentiment stamp for you and send it off.

thank you so much for participating - you know I really appreciate it and, you showed, once again, that often a CASE can be better than the original!

As for the other cards - just send them when you can. I will be sending as many as I can to Robin the "sky angel", along with other things like phone cards. So, whenever I get yours, I'll send those along as well.

You know I appreciate the support... a great deal!
big hugs

LOVE!!!! This is just great. I love the colors together and the Medallion is just stunning. I, of course, also love the inside of the card. Beautiful work.

Just simply GORGEOUS!!! Love those colors today and this is just a perfect card. So very pretty. I think I'm probably ready for some sunshine and warmer weather too!
Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.
