CASE Series #3 - A Thousand Thanks

Finally, Friday has arrived!

Time for a brand new Linky Party theme over at PDE Linky Party, and the theme is SUNSHINE.
Themes are always open to your interpretation. Use your imagination and show us what you can come up with!
I created some simple thank you mini cards.

Where did I get this idea? Right out of the Stampin' Up catalog on page 20, bottom left corner.

Even though you don't actually see a sun on these cards, I have yellow sunshine pouring down on this floral pattern using some sponging. 

Stampin' Up's "Flowering Flourishes" stamp set for image stamped in SU "Glorious Green."

Stampin' Up's "Lots of Thanks" for sentiment stamped in SU "Baked Brown Sugar."

Sunshine created with sponge dauber and SU "So Saffron" ink.

Gold Sequin

A metal die used for the flowers. I don't remember where I got the die from, but it comes with 2 flower cuts (one large, and one small).

I left the card base open when stamping the front so that the stamp would overlay a little onto the back of the card on the outside.

The inside of the card was also stamped.

These cards measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 2 3/4".

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit with me today. I love reading all your comments!

Don't forget to hop over to PDE Linky Party and link up your SUNSHINE projects!
