Sun and Cacti

Here in southern AZ we get LOTS of sun and this week has been gorgeous (except for the wind!). Our cacti are ready to bloom and when they do we have fabulous colors of reds and yellows.  My white rose has oodles of buds on it and should be blooming soon, too. But today I'm sharing a card I started on my FaceBook live video Tuesday but didn't finish as my internet went down for a while. (You can find the video on my Stampin Carol - Lots of Crafty Goodness page.)  I had to call my provider to reset things on their end and get me up and running again.

I used a lot of different FSJ papers because most everything was cut from scraps!  Only the gorgeous Pool Play (light blue) and Fresh Forest (base) came from bigger pieces.  The Oatmeal Cookie (brown) hill is from a die set that won't be available until the 26th as its from the coordinating Spring Build-A-Scene die set, part of the upcoming release of the Easy Breezy collection from Fun Stampers Journey.  The cacti are from SB's "Potted Cacti" die set.

There's some fun texture on the cacti. I didn't use my rubber embossing mat as these showed up fine just from the die cutting. I used FSJ's "My Sunshine Die Set" for the sun. I added a red and some black rhinestones from my stash to finish the card.

This will be one of the cards I'll be teaching May 24th in my masculine class.  I have yet to come up with a name for the class.... any suggestions?
