Sunshine And Smiles

You should have came from
If not and would like to start at the top of the list please go to Erica's page at .Erica trying to get cards to take to St. Jude for the kids that are there. She is trying to reach her goal of 5000 cards. If you would like to help out please check out the information here

This is my card that I have made so far. I will be making more this weekend but I wanted to share this card with everyone. Its not your typical card (only because of what I used) that you would thank of. For me I think its just a cute and fun card. So with that I will now show you what I did.

I love the mirror. at first I didn't want to use a mirror, I was just looking for a mirrored like material. but I used a real mirror. A pack of 4 only cost me $1 dollar at Joann's. :) I then wrapped the edge of the mirror with the twine to make is a softer edge. *Tip I used Zip Dry to glue down the twine and the mirror to the paper.
The recipe for the card

The card base is Studio G I do believe. The hole was already punched out :)
The boarder on the card was from a 12 x 12 stack by DCWV which I think is called The Stack it has different themes tagged for you.
The flowers are from Create a Critter cut at 3 inches I do believe. 
The inside saying was my hand written "Just to see you"
The sun and the base the I used was all from Imagine More Cart (don't remember the size)
The smile was cut from gypsy wanderings( don't remember the size)
The mirror and twine

I hope you like. Please leave me a comment. I love comments. Have fun hoping and stay crafty
