Good Morning Let there be Sunshine!!

Totally Gorjuss Challenge today the theme is Sunshine
and we are sponsored by Crafters Companion.

I really love the sunshine so when Net posted what the challenge would be I kinda was OMG! how what ermmm!

But I had a bright Idea that I wanted to put a sun on my card and started doodling as I do and decided to sew onto the card Rays of the sun... I did to it in yellow onto some card but it looked a bit rubbish so I set about masking the rays off and distressing them but even that looked a bit naff!

so I got a pot and drew a circle and then a ruler and started drawing lines, I then cut away the spaces, to add Texture I also distressed the rays then did a combination of straight stitch and zig zag on the rays that I had also distressed a little to add depth

The sentiment is a penny black stamp and also cut and distressed the scalloped circle too! In this picture you can also see I have used glossy accents to add some beads of clear accent.
