Phindy's Place / Hot Stuff, warm colors/sunshine

You know, some cards you just like right off the bat. This is one of them. It comes out like you were expecting it to and you're happily grunting to yourself.:-)
 One of the first cards I ever saw of Annika's was using this same digi, in fact she sent me the card which I treasure. You can see it here. I think it was from back when she was on Phindy's DT. Love it!

Anyway, the papers are DCWV and the sentiment is a freebie from TLC
The sun is hand crocheted. ( a little secret: I was trying out a new flower crochet pattern and couldn't quite get it so the flower idea got ditched and I now have a sun. lol)
The punches are Martha Stewart. And the coloring (which is pretty mediocre today. Sorry!) was done with prismacolors.


A little close up of my flower  uh, I mean SUN!


Oh and did I mention what the challenge is this week at Phindy's? I don't think so! It's:
