Hello Sunshine--a Ryan Post, Too!

Just sharing a card that I made for Scramble Challenge over Hero Arts Flickr over two weeks ago. The theme was to make a card with sun or sunshine. I challenge myself not to use a conventional sun stamp and came up with this design.
hello sunshine
I dig out an old favorite stamp "Row of Houses" and used
Single Starburst as the "sun"!

In case you miss seeing a Ryan post, here is one that will go with the theme for this post....sort of.
I didn't quite make the firework for my card, but I sure made the sunshine! I reminded myself that I can make anything as long as I have creativity and passion in me.
Hope your day is a sunny one! 
I will be back for Mad about Mad Men series tomorrow.
