Scatter Sunshine Card

WOYWW 305: What’s On My Work Desk This Week?

This week, wherever you go – make it your mission to Scatter Sunshine in the lives of everyone you meet!

Scatter Sunshine is a wonderful metaphor for life – and the theme of this week’s challenge card!

Once again I am playing with my scraps.

I began by layering a strip of Scotch Decorative tape across the base. I love this product and have incorporated it into several cards to date!

Then I began digging through the scraps to see what I could find. So many treasures! I made cascading tags out of pretty textured cardstock and pretty challenge-inspired patterned paper (manufacturer unknown).

I stamped Scatter Sunshine (Sentiment from Close To My Heart Stamps) on Kraft Cardstock and used it as the backdrop for the cascading tags.

I wove sheer layered ribbons between the cardstock and the tag – topped the tag with textured ribbon and a punched piece of textured green cardstock – then sprinkled my card with hand-crafted flowers infused with bling since April showers bring May flowers!

The soft feminine colors are perfect for Spring and for that special lady in your life!

Not it’s time to share your creations with us! Whether you’re showing off your desk or your latest creation – be sure to share it with our creative community at one of our weekly parties!

We’re having tons of fun at this week’s Wordless Wednesday party. I’ve written a poem about my Space-Invading Cats – I’m getting ready for Tsunami’s 8th Birthday (my how the time flies!) – and I’m hosting a cat-themed giveaway!

Be sure to stop by and join the fun – and while you’re there, be sure to share a favorite photo with us!
