New Mercies

This card is a little unusual for me because I normally don't create "scenes." When I started on this, though, it just sorta took on a life of its own!

I started with the Verve sentiment and knew I wanted to use the sun but I wasn't sure how. Then I realized that the colors of TAC's Miss Moxie were just what I wanted. First I realized the round tag would work, then I discovered that my circle punch was exactly the size of the sun if I'd stamp it on patterned paper. I found the blue/green piece (part of a Rockin' Roxie Matchbook Kit) in my scraps and thought it looked like grass and sky. The rest just sort of happened!

The rays of the sun have glitter pen, and I used Orange Peel Stickles for the insides of the paper-pieced flowers.
