Sunshine Card for Daring cardmakers

Over at Daring cardmakers this week, they want a bit of sunshine - bright cards with sunshiney colours, just what we all need after this long hard winter.
I cut the cloud and rainbow from the Hello Kitty greetings cartridge, at 5 1/2", and then cut away the front of the card around it
The papers are by Papermania UK and the sun is another cricut cut, but I'm blowed if I can remember the cartridge
Now I know that the rainbow stripes aren't in order, but hey, this is a card and I used artistic licence (and some paper scraps) here.
I did manage to find little gems in the colours of the rainbow, and stuck them onto the back of the card, jazzes it up a bit.

my favourite making memories tiny alphas, and the sunshine word is Papermania chipboard
Today is gloriously sunny here, it feels quite springlike, and true to form, hardy Brits everywhere are embracing the wintery sunshine, I saw two girls trotting along in sleeveless tops and mini skirts with bare legs. Brrrrrr!

Such a bright and happy card, just perfect for cheering anyones day.

Brings back such memories of the first sign of sun and the girls in the skimpy tops and short skirts. It is enough to make you feel cold. (now I sound like my mum LOL)

I love it!! That's one of my most favoite songs. Use to sing it to our DD when she was a baby. We both still love it. I'll have to remember this so I can do something like this for her. She would love it! Fabulous!!! :)

The Brits are always good at making the most of the weather aren't they. I think we've learn't from past experience that we have to make the most of every drop of sunshine. It's been wonderful to see it hasn't it.
Your card fits the weather perfectly, I love it.
