Three Suns - Yellow and Orange with Blue

A sunshine trio for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge to use patterned die cut silhouettes.  Following Lexi Daly's example, I chose one shape in three different colors and patterns, with a contrasting patterned background and a sentiment stamped on white.  

I also tried my background in a few different solid colors, which I thought might show the suns better.  To my surprise, though, this dark gingham looked the best.  Thank you, Lexi, for your challenge and especially for your patterned background inspiration!

 Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) stamper's select white, orange zest, summer sunrise (yellow orange), and harvest gold (yellow), with four prints: enchanted evening (dark blue) gingham, orange zest leaf, summer sunrise stripe, and harvest gold bitty dot, all from PTI pattern packs.
  • Dies are from PTI ad sense and what the doodle: sun.  I also used an old 1/4" hole punch.
  • The sentiment "sending sunshine" is from PTI keep it simple: encouragement, stamped with PTI orange zest ink cube.
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.

Lovely card! At first they appeared to be sunflowers, see that you used the Doodle Sunshine dies. Such a good idea either way!
