June with the Challenge Chicks

It's the first Sunday of June, yippee!  School is almost out and it's time for some fun with the Challenge Chicks!  Lydia came up with a cheerful "Here Comes the Sun" challenge...use yellow, orange, and white on a card with extra credit bonus points if we use an actual sun image!

YES!  Accepted the challenge AND got the bonus points :)!!  I cut various yellow and orange patterned papers into wedges and glued them into a sun ray pattern.  Started with the 2 pieces at the bottom meeting in the middle, then added as I went around.

Then I stamped 2 suns (one on top, then one directly underneath) from Waltzingmouse Stamps "My Island" and cut out the center portion with a circle Nestie. Stamped a sentiment from the new "Country Labels No. 4" set over the top, then used the new circle frame from Country Labels No. 4 and placed it over the top with dimensionals.  Sunny!
