It's a Sunshine Day!!!

(Sung in my best Brady Bunch voice :) Today is such a dreery day, so I thought it called for a bright, sunshiney card.  My kids have been recording "The Brady Bunch" on DVR and watching them ALL of the time, so I have that tune stuck in my head!  I guess you can say that was the inspiration for this card!  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to keep it simple. I started with the sun in the corner. Each layer is popped up on a Dimensional to give it some depth. Then I found the perfect sentiment from Pursuit of Happiness and embossed it with Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder. Finally, I went to my scraps and found a scrap of DSP in Tangerine Tango, in just the perfect size! This card was definitely a stress-free card and just kind of came together for me. I love it when that happens!
