Fun in the Sun WW reminder

Just a quick post and reminder that you still have a few days to enter
the current challenge at Wicked Wednesday ATC challenges.
The theme is Sun and Surf, and we are sponsored by

I used the adorable flamingo fun image.
I was just going to keep him pretty simple, but my
"less is more" mantra flew out the window quite quickly.

I have had these sun earrings for ages! Really, like 20 years!
So I cut off the post, glued Mister Sun to a piece of orange card stock,
fussy cut a bit, and then Stickled the begeejuss outta him!
Big, bright, sun with shades! 

Then came the die cuts.
I used a cloud (cut in half) and flocked it for a nice texture.
After coloring the grass on the image, I opted for some MS punched 
grass to add some dimension and interest. And to cover my poor grass coloring skills.

Who says ATCs have to be simple and flat?

I'd like to enter this ATC in the current challenge at
