Paper Playtime Challenge 43 - Weather theme

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog! Today we are having another fun challenge at Paper Playtime with Challenge 43-Weather theme. Use a rainbow, clouds, sun, rain, or anything else pertaining to the weather on your project.
For my card, I wanted a bright Spring card with a shining sun! I also wanted to make this as a birthday card for my friend's daughter.
Card is 5 x 6 1/2 and layered with a piece of blue/white designer paper.

Cricut cartridges:
Create A Critter- Sun on page 52 cut 2 inches, Flowers on page 69 cut at 2 1/4 inches (one cut using flip feature), Poodle on page 36 cut 3 inches, and Happy Birthday on page 27 cut 1 3/4 inches.
Paper Doll Dress Up - Grass on page 78 cut at 3/4 inches. I trimmed a small bit off so grass could fit between the flowers.
Cuttlebug: Divine Swirls and Swiss Dots folders
Martha Stewart inks and Gelly Roll pen doodling complete the look.

Be sure to check out the amazing projects by the design team. You can go to each of the blogs from Paper Playtime. We are happy to have Joy's Life as the sponsor this challenge. The prize is Joy's Lots of Pun Stamps (set of 23). We look forward to seeing your paper projects. You have until midnight CST Saturday April 23 to enter your project.
