Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge Challenge #27

Happy Friday fellow bloggers!!  Today I have some exciting news to share with you.  I have been invited to join Janis and the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge Design Team for the next term.  This Friday our challenge is "Sunset".  These challenges are great because they get me out of my comfort zone.  I used my cricut to make this card.  For the sun I used a circle from George and Basic Shapes.  The palm trees are from Life is a Beach.  The background paper is cloud paper from Joanns and I sponged on some darker blue and some pink to create the sunset look.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps and I hand drew the birds.  The sand was some older Creative Memories paper and I used their wavy trimmer to create the shape of the sand.  The cardstock is from Recollections.  
You can join in our challenge here by creating a project with a Sunset theme.  One lucky winner will receive a $5.00 gift certificate to Ginger Snap Scraps.

  2. stunning! You sky looks terrific!

  3. This is such a beautiful summer card! I hope you stop by the challenge at

  4. Very relaxing sunset. The "brick layer" look is just odd pieces of scraps that I cut and glue. It is like a collage or mosaic. I love to create backgrounds this way and you use lots of scraps. No card ever looks the same. If you need more information, let me know!
