Wishing You Sunshine (TCP Tuesday 217)

Good morning. Today's card is for TCP Tuesday (TCPTUES217) which is a technique/supply challenge from our hostess, Julie to use the sunglasses template provided in the TCP Forum at Splitcoaststampers.

I reduced the size of the template to 75% so my sunglasses would fit on an A2 card and then cut the lens with cloud patterned paper. I was going for a "sunshine" theme by using one of my favorite TCP stamp sets, Wet Puddle. The "sun" was created with a combination of the Flower Buttons and the circle from the Easy Rosette CutUps. The sentiment flags were cut also using the Easy Rosette CutUps.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp and CutUps, Echo Park, My Mind's Eye and My Little Shoebox dp, Doodlebug jewels, PTI felt, Copic Markers
Copics: Skin-E000, E00, E11, R20; Hair-E30, E33, E39; Clothing-Y11, Y13, Y17, BG0000, BG01, BG05
