Card Week, Part 6 - Guest Designer

It's our May guest designer, Angela Ploegman's turn to share what she created with the sunshine card sketch. I love it and I'm sure you will too! It's always fun to see how differently everyone interprets the sketch.

Card Sketch #6

"My Congrats to You" card by Angela Ploegman
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Pebbles; Template: Crafter's Workshop; Mists: Tattered Angels; Glitter paper: Reminisce; Punches: EK Success (scalloped circle and pointed circle)' Paper Studio (large circle), Fiskars (medium circle); Alphabet letters: Basic Grey; minibrads: Karen Foster

This card sketch brought a big smile to my face. I had picked up a Crafter's Workshop Sunburst template some time ago and had been looking for an excuse to use it! This sketch fit the bill, to a 'T'!

I ended up centering the design and misted the sunburst onto white card stock. Since I put the design in the center, the card took on a more graphic than whimsical look, so I enhanced the graphic feel by mounting the design first on orange patterned paper and then on a black 6x6 inch card base. I added custom photo corners, using strips of coordinating red paper and black mini brads. The center tag is a scalloped circle punch layered with circle punches and popped with pop dots...I replaced the trio of clouds with 3 pointed circles and used them as a base to complete the card sentiment.
