The Sun on Your Window

When I looked at this week’s Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge (SQSC34), I immediately thought of a window or door. My card is from the perspective of someone looking out the window from inside the house. The Irish Prayer that I found gave me the perfect verse to highlight on the outside. Here’s this week’s original sketch:

And here’s my version of the card:

The Sun on Your Window

Here are the details on how I made it:

  • Background Layer: Certainly Celery (picked from the center of the flower)
  • Middle Layer and Crossbar: Close to Cocoa
  • Top Layer: Play Date—Pattern 1
  • Stamp: On the Go Digital Kit—Sun, in So Saffron (picked from the flowers)
    • Circle Punch in Small Polka Dot—So Saffron placed over the center of the sun to make it blend with the look of the flowers
  • Embellishments: Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware—Rectangle
  • Sentiment: Text in the font Lucida Bright in Close to Cocoa on a Very Vanilla Oval Punch over a Close to Cocoa Oval Punch. The bottom oval has the default drop shadow.

Inside sentiment shows the entire poem, which is labeled as either anonymous or as an Irish prayer on various sites online. Here’s the full piece, which the line on the front came from:

May there always be work for your hands to do;
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your window pane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
