Here Comes the Sun

 What sunny weather we are having! I made this easel card using a Paper Cupcakes image "Hello Sunshine".  I colored it with Copics and added some highlights with glaze pens. I matted the image on Yellow and Green CS and attached to the easel. On the inside I used some glitter papers and added some 3D flowers cut from  DP to hold the easel. Also stamped a verse inside that reads "Be like the flower. Turn your faces to the sun."  Shown in lower photo.

Challenges:
There's Magic in the Air: Suzi asks us to make an easel card.
Lollipop Crafts: Be inspired by a song. My inspiration was "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles.
Sentimental Sunday: Inspired by a song...as above..song is "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles. Go to end of post to listen to the song. Sentiments are on front and inside.
A Spoon Full of Sugar:  Theme is Flower Power....the sun is always followed with flowers.
Scrap Creations: Color challenge to use blue, yellow and green.
Alphabet Challenge: E is for easel card.

Crafter's Companion Challenge: Theme is Here Comes Summer.
Truly Scrumptious: Theme is Summer Sparkle. I used glitter papers and flowers on the inside. I also have sparkle added with glaze pens but it is hard to see on the photo.

Supplies:
Digital Image: Paper Cupcakes
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers "Hello Sunshine" Set on front
             GKD "Say it with Flowers" inside verse
Inks: Memento Bamboo Leaves, Summer Sky, Dandelion
Copics B21,91,Y02,06
Sakura Glaze Pens Yellow, Green
Papers: GKD White, Yellow, Green CS; DCVW Glitter papers from Flower Shower Pack
