 Hello everyone,

Back with a DT project for Little Red Wagon and this week we are going to "Let the Sunshine"..that is our fabulous hostess Brendas choice, "Use a Sun..easy peasy..

My project.. [hee hee,] and I bet you all thought oh, sunshine, Chrissy will do a seaside with a Bear or something, but I didn't, and only because I found this stencil and thought, oh, look, it looks like a sun, so I went with it without any withdrawls..

My stenciled sun, with a slight ombre look..

and popped inside a cellophane bag along with gold micro beads, stars and little yellow flowers I found while tidying up..

Gave it a shake, and oh, so pretty and sunny..

All nestled down the bottom, so satisfying.

I made some new leaves as I also found this gorgeous green card
 stock in such a soft green colour..

Daisies from my leftover tray, which were not in my mind until I found them too and they went perfectly..

I added tiny glass hearts, my new find at Temu.

On the leaves too..

So much sparkle and shine so turned it into a Get Well card..

So there we go, Let the sunshine and come on over,

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow..

How pretty and sunny!!! Great design, Chrissy. Your shaker elements are so clever; they really do give the appearance of sand and complement the sun rays perfectly.

I absolutely LOVE this card, Chrissy. I love the flowers on the outside of the shaker, something Iʻm not sure I would have thought of. This card is guaranteed to make someone feel better!

Well, you have done it again, Chrissy! What a novel idea to use the cellophane envelope/baggie and create a shaker card! Besides, what is a pretty Chrissy card without flowers? It's beautifully done, of course! your recipient will be delighted! And now... Thank you for sharing your love of all things flowers at the Beautiful Blossoms Challenge. Looking forward to seeing you again!
