Let The Sun Shine ~ Inside and Out

I decided to post this second card today.....
for a challenge at Papercraft Star to
"Let The Sun Shine"
I made it several days ago and hadn't decided if I would post it or not....
but, the more it sat here, the more it kind of grew on me
I  made it out of some "stuff" that was in my stash I was trying to use up
 
 
I had long, long ago stamped the flowers with SU inks....
I added some bling to a few of the flowers, made a sun and
added the last piece of my gingham ribbon...(but I will purchase that again)...
 
 
As I mentioned in my previous post, my friend "Dar" has been inspiring me to
finish the insides of my cards.....
I had purchased a "sunshine" stamp set from Technique Tuesday last year
and finally used them.
 
Do you find you "just have to have" an item and then don't use it right away...
oh well, I guess that is all part of it......
 
I received some new goodies today, and one was the
 We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board......
all I can saw is WOW...I LOVE that thing...it makes approx 66 different sized
envelopes and is super easy to use......
well gotta run, one of the kiddos has a concert tonight.....

What a cheerful card! I love the designer paper sun. Can't be without that gingham ribbon, can we? I love gingham as much as polka dots!
