You Are My Sunshine

Today's card combines two challenges.  I really like this sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and the copper was a perfect match for the "metallics" trend at Just Us Girls.  The combination worked well together.

The top and bottom border is from the Father Christmas stamp set and I stamped it using Sweet Sugarplum.  I used a Blending Tool to sponge over the Whisper White layer with some Vintage Photo to give it a bit of vintage look.  Then, I stamped the sun image from Kinda Eclectic to let sun rays shine behind the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies oval.  The sun was stamped using Sahara Sand.  Behind the stitched oval I added some loops of Copper Metallic Thread to add another touch of metallic.  The sentiment is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.

The word sunshine was made using the negative from left after die cutting the word for another project.  I taped it on the Whisper White and filled it in with a VersaMark Pen, then sprinkled Copper Embossing Powder over it and heat set it.  Now it's a bit of coppery sunshine.
