Sketch Challenge Sunflower

I was looking for inspiration last night, so I went to SCS and checked out the Sketch Challenge for the week. Click here to see the posted challenge. I loved the layout and knew it would work perfectly with the sunflower that I wanted to use anyway. I had the Give Thanks set out from the apple buckets I did last week and I wanted to use the sunflower on something before I put it away.

Here is what I came up with. The base is Chocolate Chip. The front edge of this card is trimmed by 1" so the inside of the card shows. I used two different pieces of the So Saffron Prints Designer Paper on the front and inside. Always Artichoke is the accent layer. I watercolored the sunflower with So Saffron, Always Artichoke & Chocolate Chip classic ink by applying with my blender pen on watercolor paper. The stem bled just a little outside the lines, so that shadow got a little darker than I intended! I used my Crop-A-Dile to set Jumbo eyelets so I could thread a piece of ribbon thru. The ribbon is from the Theater Ribbon Originals set.
