Sunny Best Wishes

Hello friends, it is Monday evening in the Northern Hemisphere and I have to say it has been a very casual kind of day - thankfully!  I have got a lot of deadlines met - which is always a relief and even managed to babysit our grandson this evening - which is always a pleasure.  I hope Monday has been kind to you!

I have a very simply and east card to share with you today. I came across this embossing folder on one of the Craft Buy Swap and Sell Groups on facebook Ecstasy Crafts 5x7 Dazzling Sunburst and I just had to have it - there is something about it that just makes me smile.  

I used Chameleon Art Pens on the folder to add the golden glow - Mellow Yellow to be precise,  The butterfly embellishment is from my stash, the Washi Tape by none other than Donna Salazar and the sentiment computer generated.  I have also added sequins from my stash.

The embossed layer has been popped up onto a precut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares and there you have it - I told you it was quick and easy!!  

This card is linked to the following challenges:
