I have a cute card to share to day using the the featured Doodled Occasions stamp set and Verve's Cut Above Ribbon Banner and Pennant trim dies.  For this card the Pennant trim die was used to create the sun rays.  I stamped the adorable smiley face image that comes in the set in Memento black.  I added some glitter for extra fun and sunshine sparkle. I just love the variety of fonts and sentiments with oodles of doodled images that come in this set.  Makes for some fun and fast cards!







This card is also my 
sample for this week's Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C150)!  Silke is the host for August.  This week she has challenged us to a COLOR COMBO of  BLUE - YELLOW - PINK - GREEN!  Fun colors for sure!  I am also using this week's Mojo Monday sketch(mojo254)!
