ATC turned into a card----------

This is an ATC I made for Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge. A few weeks ago they posted on how to turn your ATCs into a card. I instantly thought of my mother when I seen the challenge.  "You are my sunshine"

Every time my mother can she tells me that when I was little I would just walk around singing this song. Non stop. I would sing it to her every chance I got she always reminds me, of course when its most embarrassing.  It just seemed fitting for me to make her a card saying it.

So I started with an ATC. Simple enough, I make tons of them. Then I built the card around it. That got harder. I should have pulled my papers together before to see what I had but nope..I just ran with it.

I was not organized well. The green strip that was to go on the outside of the card was taped down on the inside and I cut all the stripes different lengths.  Its not the end the card as I still love the way it turned out but it would have been following the sketch better.

Following challenges below. Give me a sec please

Sweet Sketch Wednesday------ the sketch, Thanks!

The paper girls------- inspiring photo of yellow with leaves and twigs that I seen in it. And a bed, the bed was lost with me, haha! I just got done using grey and I did not want the yellow and grey so I went with the colors of the host of the last challenge. 

Ok I need to take a drive up to my moms house and pop this into her mailbox.

  24. SUPER cute creation! I love to create smaller pieces that can be easily added to card as well.

    I adore that song - It was the other way around for me. My mama always sang it to us (my siblings & I) when we were children. It was the greatest thing in the world to me!
