Inking Royalty Sunshine Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty's July Blog Hop! This year's Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word - and this month our projects are centered around SUNSHINE. The Sun is the single most important source of energy for life on Earth - it guides our clocks, calendars and planting schedules. Some of us may be enduring a heat wave this week, but we still associate the Sun with positivity, joy and renewal. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you'll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I am in love with this image from Beautiful You. It's joyful and carefree. I cut the rays from Pineapple Punch and Crushed Curry (I'll be able to make another card although I do like the Pineapple Punch in the center). I did fussy cut the Beautiful You image and outlined it with the black marker to give it a finished look. The circle and image are popped up.

The bottom strip is sandpaper! Makes this card feel beachy, no?
