The paperlane challenge - Shades of Sunshine

  I would like to share with you the card I made for
 the paperlane challenge the challenge is
 shades of sunshine this month. 
I don't think yellows are a colour we use very often in our cards as the main colour. Which is a shame because, its just one of those colours that can bring  a smile  to your face and make you feel happy.
So when the challenge was set by  Caz, I thought about what colours I wanted to use.   
Yellow -
Because its one of the shade of sunshine.
Green -
 In the summer   the fields are a patch  work quilt of greens  and yellows with crops growing and the corn ripening
Orange -
 Again its associated with the sun i.e.  sunsets  and blooming flowers.
Pink -
Because a girls got to have pink and it went well with the papers to make the pink flowers you see in the card
Anyway I best show you what I made.
I also stamped image of molly cupcake again and coloured and cut out the tray and her alice band and added to image to give more depth.

The flowers were made from the papers using the tattered floral die (smallest flower) for the biggest petal layer then using scissors cot the next layer petals a tad smaller and again for the smallest layer. then twisted the petals and glued together waited till dry added a hole for stamen and glued them in place. added the stickles on edge of petals.

All the papers, card and copics, die cuts, seam binding, the molly bloom stamps and buttons from
I would also like to say what a lovely array of cards we received for last months challenge
