Golfing Ted

 It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.

The challenge this time is: Use one or more sun(s)
And here is my card for your inspiration:
Little Ted is out playing a round of gold on his birthday.  Luckily for him, it is a nice sunny day!  At first all three of my circle elements were suns, but it was a little too crowded and actually looked a little funny with three suns!!  So, I made one a sun and the other two are just design elements.  For a little more fun, I added three enamel dots to echo the larger die cut circles.  I created the background using scraps from a paper pack.  I had paper pieced Ted's shorts and hat and needed to tie in those patterns but didn't have any pieces from the pack that were large enough.  So, I made my own!

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Very cute card Heather, I love this image it's perfect for a birthday card. I love how you paper pieced his shorts and hat. I love the idea of the sun as well. If you had smaller circle dies you could have made the sun a little smaller, and made the other two white for golf balls and embossed them giving them texture. I love this card it's great. thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.
