Case Study Challenge #138 - You are My Sunshine

Hi there...what a nice weekend I have had.  Lots and lots of crafting and I totally enjoyed it!  Today I am posting a card for Case Study Challenge #138, the fourth and final week for this month's muse
JJ Bolton.  I love the card she made for this week's inspiration, in fact I used 4 aspects of her card on the one I made.  Here is her card:

My main focus was the sentiment and the sun.  I was flipped though some of my patterned paper and when I pulled out Summer Fresh from Simple Stories, I realized it had everything I needed to make a card with lots of sunshine in it.  Here it is:
Can you believe there is absolutely no stamping on this card?  Not sure I have ever done that before, but that pattern pack had it all done for me.  I used the Sunshine sentiment, sun, clouds and even the cute butterflies from JJ's card.  It was so country looking I had to add a bit of burlap too.  The denim paper is some digital paper I printed and the sun and clouds were cut with my Cameo.  I have totally enjoyed these last four weeks with JJ and can't wait to find out who next month's muse is and what great inspiration is in store for me!

Love this country sunshine! Just reminds me of a good old summer day! Really like that printed denim paper too! Wow no stamps!

Wow--no stamps. That is incredible. I just love this card. Your paper sunbeams are gorgeous--did you really cut and sew them all? I can see where JJ inspired you, but you totally made this card your own.
