{Hello Sunshine} My Scraps & More Sketch 109 Reveal

Hi everyone!  I'm back on this fine Friday for another My Scraps & More sketch team reveal.  Today's sketch was created by Audrey Yeager, and it was a really fun one! Sunbursts are very popular right now, and this sketch is a great take on it.  When I first saw it, I envisioned cutting the sunburst out using my Cameo and filling it in with multiple papers - which is also a very fun trend.  So that's exactly what I did.

I used several collections from the My Scraps & More store...they work perfectly together.

After I cut the sunburst out of my white cardstock base and lined the papers behind each "ray", I sewed along the outside edges of the sunburst.

After including the photos, I created the title using some Fancy Pants letter stickers from an older collection, and I cut "sunshine" out using my Cameo.  I wanted an ombre effect for the title, so I used the Simple Stories Shine On's sooo pretty!  To help "sunshine" pop, I cut it out again using white cardstock and glued it underneath to create a thicker word.

I wanted to keep my layout simple, but decided it needed an embellishment area, so I used the cloud sticker from the Simple Stories collection and pulled some baker's twine through a button.

I sprinkled a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, dots from October Afternoon and Droplets from Queen & Co.  Finally, I included my journaling on the bottom right sunburst ray.

I hope this layout provide a little bit of sunshine to your weekend, and I hope you play along with the sketch!  Link up at My Scraps & More sketches in July for your chance to win a great prize.  Check out all the other designers' takes on the sketch for even more inspiration!

Have fun, and enjoy your holiday weekend!
