Sunrise, Sunset


Good Morning!  Nope you didn't wake up to a post about Fiddler on the Roof!  I was just trying to be cute :)  

Welcome to our Friday challenges at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges where we have a new question or theme posted every Friday!  That's 52 projects in 2012 if you do them all!  We thought it would be a neat idea to make all 52 projects part of a mini album... a new page every week based on the question or theme. 

But you interpret this challenge any way you like. All forms of crafting are welcome! 

This week we are on Challenge #27 which is to create ANY type of project with a SUNSET theme - either using colors of a sunset or create a sunset on your project. (Thus the title of my post!)

This week I created a cute Sunset card with a Disney theme:

I actually used three different cartridges to make this card:  Art Philosophy, Create-A-Critter and Mickey and Friends. The paper came from our Stella paper pack.

I used Sunny Yellow cardstock to cut the inside circle of the sun using the AP cartridge, page 21, A1, < Circle1 > cut at 4".  The rays of the sun were made using the Create-A-Critter cartridge on page 52, C10, < Sun > cut at 6" using Honey textured cardstock.  I edged both pieces of the sun with Honey ink and then I used Yellow Stickles to outline each piece to give it a little "pop".

Mickey and Minnie can be found in the Mickey and Friends cartridge and were cut at 3" using Black and Indian Corn Blue cardstock.  Mickey can be found on page 29, A2, shadow: base/icon, < Mickey1 > and Minnie can be found on page 39,, B2, shadow: base/icon, < Minnie1 >.

Finally, the sentiment "Wish you were here!" came from the Going Places Cricut cartridge.  It was on page 93, B2, shift, < Wishhere > cut at 1 1/2".
