Summer Time Fun -- with Whimsical Designs

Wednesday -- hump day -- and, since I've joined the Whimsical Designs team, new challenge day.  It's Whimsical Wednesday over on the Whimsical Designs blog.  You'll love all the inspiration there from my fellow DT sisters!
 This week, we're having some "Summer Time Fun".  Maybe it'll help our weather here!  We were barely out of the fifties all weekend, we've hit 70 once or twice, but that's as warm as we've gotten.  Hoping for some warmth to spread our way, I made this summer sun card:

I used 2 stamp sets on this card.  Everyday Sentiments has the "Let's Celebrate" sentiment, and I used the adorable delicate butterfly on Whimsical Fun - Volume 1 to add character to the background paper of the sun.

The sun shaped card is a cutting file from the Cutting Café.  I used a circle punch to add the scalloped looking border to the sun.  Papers are from Close To My Heart -- a retired paper line called Flirty.  The rhinestones are also from Close To My Heart.
Our sponsor for this week's challenge at Whimsical Wednesday is Fresh Brewed Designs. 

 The winner will receive 3 digis of their choice.  What are you waiting for? Summer goes fast enough!  Make something summery and link up with us!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
