If I Lived On The Sun I Would Be Golden

Hello.  Welcome.  Midnight crafting, because it's too hot and my brain doesn't realise it's time to stop.  Cheery Lynn wanted to see gold or silver and I feel very gold at the moment.  Hot sunny days make me think of desert sand, the sun, golden fields of grain.  Then I started thinking that the people that live on the sun must be golden too.  Yeah, uh, right....  I told you it's hot here.  My little grey cell is being broiled.  Despite the temporary madness an idea did arise

I used the same Gold Stardream card for my base card, the Cheery Lynn Tiny Bubbles Border die cut and to stamp my Prima Doll in a Peasant Dress.  I did give her a very stylish gold wallpaper dress with lace trim and half pearl headband.  Then I went a little mad and sat for a while gluing the large bubbles, which have been cut from the bubble border, to make a background.  Crazy?  Yes.  But I like it
