DCM little extra - *Sunshine*

It's little extra time at Daring Card Makers
this time we'd like to give you just one single word as your inspiration, and that word is: *SUNSHINE*
UR the Sunshine of My Life.... sing it with me... gosh that song got stuck in my head while I made this card.. so this is my take on *SUNSHINE*.. I wonder what your take will be..
Sunshine bits on this card are - Bazzill Cardstock, Stella Ruby PP, making memories chipboard frame -green, Bella Chipboard letters, Basic Grey Wooden disc, Metal Label holder, dymo tape, black brads, screw brads, black embossing powder, & you guessed it my sewing machine...
Oh I came up with something pretty cool for this card, well I think it is anyway.. with the UR... I stamped them with Versa Mark Watermark stamp pad, then sprinkled a very small amount of black embossing powder onto the chipboard letters, I didn't want them to be to dark, and love this 'grungy' look...
But Wait there's more........

I know, don't know what came over me...just had to make another..

and here tis... a little bit different from the first LOL!

Bits that Get your attention on this card are - Bazzill Cardstock, Really Big Prima Flower, Heidi Swapp Blossom, Urban Lily cardstock flower & Chipboard Circle, making memories Chipboard flower & frame cut in half, Label holder, making memories crystal brads, ink pad & pigment pen, and ofcourse my sewing machine..

So have you Dared to DARE yet?... COME ON I DARE YOU!!!
