Summer Sun & A Mid-Month Challenge

It's finally summer! Is it just me, or is it easier to create a summer-themed project when the sun is shining and it's warm outside? (This may not be relevant for all of you, but us Pacific North-Westerners are finally seeing some temps above 60 degrees LOL.) I used up what was left of my KNK June kit to create this layout, and finally felt inspired to use some of those popscicles that came with it....I was due for a good good glitter mess, so I cut my popscicle sticks into various lengths, put a layer of Glossy Accents on them, then dumped Doodlebug Sugar (Bumblebee) over that. I also mixed a little chunky orange loose glitter for a more textured look. The resulting sun-accent for my page worked really well with some photos of one of our trips to the coast. This would also be a great way to simulate sand on a project.

Finally, with a few leftovers, I made this Encouragement card. Inside reads "You'll feel better!" with plenty of white space for a hand-written sentiment.
Are you ready for the challenge? I know we are slightly past mid-month, but this is an easy one (and I will give you a few extra days, too)! Create your own summer sun accent. You can use anything as long as it is hand-created by you. How do you make sunshine on a page? Link a photo of your own creation in a comment to this post by July 4th, and there's a RAK up for grabs :) Keep in mind you don't have to create a whole layout or other project, just the sun embellishment. Happy scrapping!
