Sunflower Bouquet

Hi all , I hope your weekend is going well. This year I  did not get to have a garden and I really miss all the fresh vegetables. But I all so miss the Sunflowers that I always planted along the edge. Turning to face the sun as it moved across the sky. I know most people think of sunflowers as fall flowers but around here they bloom in July. So for my card today I used Sunflowers.

I used the Sunflower Trio. and colored them with my copic markers. For the flower on the top left. I stamp the treo three times and cut the center flower out then on the next one I cut out some of the petals then just the center, they were layered with foam tape. The blue layer was cut with a Spellbinder die, I used red line tape and black glitter for the stripes. The Birthday Bouquet was stamped on white card with black ink .

Have a wonderful day,

Challenge So Charming

Hi all, the new DRS designs challenge this week is to use a charm on your card.

I stamped the Single Rose and used copics to color the background and the flower. A Spellbinder oval die was use to cut out the image using the out of the box technique. With the image still in the die I punched the holes around the edge. This was layered onto green card.The pale yellow paper was embossed with a Spellbinder die. I added the ribbon and bow with the heart charm for the finishing touch. This was layered onto a white card.

Go on over to the DRS designs blog and join in this challenge.

Have a wonderful day,
