Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Bright & Sunny

Good evening everyone, and a rather belated welcome from me to this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Sorry to say that following recent events I'm still a bit at sixes and sevens, so I only managed to make my card this afternoon. So straight to business ...
Thanks to everyone who entered last month's challenge - sorry I didn't do any commenting last month due to obvious reasons, but I'm sure all our entries were wonderful as always! Don't forget to check out the main challenge blog to see if youa re a winner.
This month our entry is in tune with the season, and so apt for the recent weather we have been having ... it is
Bright & Sunny
You can interpret this however you like, so long as you use a Penny Black image stamp, large sentiment or stickeroo as the focus of your project.
This month we have two lovely prizes on offer:
$20 store voucher.
Don't forget to check out the sun-tastic creations by the rest of the DT - here is my rather belated effort.

Media: Promarkers;
Papers: Me To You "Spring Chic";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; gems from Hobbycraft; lace from The Ribbon Box;
