You are my Sunshine

I love how this card has turned out. I am going to do a great big pile of these in different colours I just love the look and may even try doing a shaker card which is where I saw the idea first.
I saw a couple of cards that were my inspiration and convinced me I needed this die. The first one is a shaker card made by the very talented Toni Maddox at Frankie Helps Craft. I was totally smitten but couldn't image doing a shaker card, not yet anyway.
Then I saw Diana's card on her blog Yours Truly by Diana and loved the idea of the black behind the white notes.

Of course I had to use my favourite colours that are pink and yellow blending into orange in the middle - blended distress inks. Took me a while to work out what had to be cut first to get the right look with in the die cut stitched circle.

Now if you look carefully you will see my usual, yes I made a mistake and it didn't show till I took a photo then I thought it was the light and went back and looked at the card and its like 'how did I manage to do that'. Anyhooo side on you can see the black layer for the music die cut. used my favourite stamp 'You Are My Sunshine' and wander around singing for a bit. Add three little sparkles and its all finished.

Now I want to add this to a challenge but I don't know if its considered too close to the original which was Toni's so after a bit of a ponder I will enter and if its not the right thing to do I hope someone lets me know and I will remove the link.

Challenge I am adding it to is CASology:Week 146: MUSIC  cause there are music notes and the name of a song. No I'm not I was too late, lol, what a nut. And not a challenge to enter it in.

Hope you enjoy your visit.
