Sunshiny Day

Hi there!

It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! This fortnight we’re challenging you to use one edge of your card only and the optional twist is ‘inspired by a song’. Our sponsor is CASual Fridays

When I saw the optional twist, I thought of a set, called My Sunshine, that I bought on sale from Simon Says Stamp. It contains quite a few song lyrics  and I thought this lyric from ‘I can see clearly now’ would work well along the edge of my card. Who remembers that song? I know the Jimmy Cliff version and remember when it came out over 25 years ago!

I decided to use a light blue card base and inked up the large sun image from the set using a couple of Distress Oxide inks (Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey). I was so pleased with the ink coverage – the colours seem to be pretty vibrant and yellow, even though I didn’t use a white card base.

This card is super simple and came together so quickly! Once I stamped the image and sentiment, I added some sequins to help guide the eye along the edge! A few understated embellishments are fine, as long as they support a CAS design!

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by the talented Angie from Cimba Creative Fun – I love her card – you must check them out!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Very much along the edge if you ask me 😉 and fab song, I sang it in my head when reading your sentiment…or singing your sentiment. Great set from SSS, used to have it, but gave it away as I never used it, regretting that now of course lol


  2. Oh brilliant Lucie! Wondered how you managed to get a sentiment with the correct words. The blue card base is such a good idea too and the sun shines beautifully against it.


  3. I remember this song – one of my all time favs! Love how you used it to inspire your happy sweet card! Love it – it just makes me smile and I can hear the song in my head!!!
