Keep Your Face To The Sunshine

Paper Makeup Stamps has a new challenge - dimension.
Because most of my cards go to Operation Write Home, I keep them quite flat but I can add some dimension with a thin two sided foam tape.  That is what I did for this card.

After printing the sun image two times on two shades of yellow, I cut them out and stacked the face of the sun on top the rays with the dimensional tape. (after I added some color with pencils)
To make the frame, I used a Spellbinder die to cut out a negative space on the front of a folded card then glued the white card to the inside behind the negative space.
The card seemed a little plain so I did a little piercing in the corners and added dew drops to the sun's cheeks.

Hope this card brought you a little sunshine to your face.
