Christmas Tree from Sunshine

Happy August! Today is my son's 24th Birthday and we're celebrating at Red Robin and then with some cake at home. We combine a few birthdays together in the summer so the larger family party is coming in a couple of weeks. But since today is his real birthday, a shout out to my favorite guy, Jacob! Happy Birthday bud!!

On to a quick card I made last night while watching the women's gymnastic team capture GOLD for the USA - YAY! I'm not a huge sports fan but I love gymnastics (and figure skating in the winter).

I just got an order from my favoritest stamp company in the world, Papertrey Ink, and one of the sets I purchased was Hello Sunshine. Well, I had an idea to turn one of the sun ray images into a Christmas tree and I am pretty darn geeked with the results! I kept it super simple, using Happy Spots and Ripe Avocado cardstock for my background and a little twine as an embellishment. The star is from the Banner Builders set and the Happy Holidays is from Winter Swirls.

Thanks for stopping by - and be sure to check out the Petite-Party Planners where we will be posting a new party tip, idea, photo or whatnot every Wednesday!

Yay! Great minds think alike, I just made a card using the sun rays as trees too! :) Too cute!
