Seize the Birthday ~SUNSHINE!

Welcome to another Seize the Birthday Challenge!!
This time our topping is asking for SUNSHINE!!

I sponged on a light color of DI squeezed lemonade, then put down the Tim Holtz "Rays" stencil and sponged on the same ink.
My vision was a garden of flowers all reaching for the rays.
I used the stamps and dies from SOA Sugar Pea Designs:  Enchanted Garden

 
I hope you will play along with us and if you choose not to use the SUNSHINE topping, you can make any kind of BIRTHDAY card! 

Heart Hugs, friends!
