Simple Sun Card

This is a super simple card I made for a couple of challenges. The card is 4"x5" and is a pre-made card that I had on hand. I cut two strips of dark green and two strips of dark gray at 4 7/8"x7/8" each. I used the birds and swirls embossing folder and placed the four strips side by side on it and then embossed them. Then I spaced them apart on the card the it gives a unique look to the image. I tied a yellow ribbon around the card in the middle and placed the sun on top. The sun was cut from Create a Critter, using the hide contour feature on my Gypsy to get rid of the face. I inked both layers of the sun and used pop-dots to adhere it to the card.

I made this card for two challenges. The first one was a color challenge from Picture Perfect Creations. Their colors this week are: basic gray, garden green, and daffodil delight. The other challenge this card is for is Made By Momo. Her challenge is to make something with a sun, cloud or rainbow.
I decided not to add a sentiment so that it could be used for just about anything. The inside is also blank, so I can add a stamped or written sentiment to the inside when I decide what, exactly, I am going to use it for. Enjoy!
