Paper Smooches Sunnyville Stamps, Sunnyville Icons dies, Power Rays die

I used super cute new Sunnyville stamps set with Sunnyville Icons dies.  The image was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers then popped up on foam squares over die-cut Power Rays.

Once the sun/cloud piece was adhered over the rays, I used a large needle to stitch the gold cord in place. Once stitched, I secured the ends on the back using double-side tape, then adhered the completed panel to a card base.
