Sketch Frenzy Friday 111911

Happy Friday all! As you know that means another Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge and mini hop. My brain worked hard on this one and ended up in Sunflower mode. No surprise there!! What can I say? Sunflowers make me happy :) Here is my card:

based on this sketch by Deb Currier.

I do start the process of making these cards in my head. And often times I struggle to get past the literal elements of the sketch. In this one, the star "element" and the script background were hard for me to work past. But I kept pushing!! I even altered the sketch just a tad by moving my sentiment. But the point of these is inspiration and I SURE got that!! Thanks Deb :)

The card base is Chocolate Chip with an accent of Daffodil Delight behind the Naturals White background. On the background I stamped the Sunflower in Daffodil Delight. (Hindsight, I wonder if Chocolate Chip might have been better??) Across that I attached a Daffodil Delight 1-1/4" Grosgrain ribbon, then a 1/2" Scallop Dots Chocolate Chip ribbon upside down (no dots). For the flower element, I cut two of the medium Daisies from Daffodil Delight and two from Chocolate Chip and layered them together with an Antique Brad in the center. Actually, I attached the brad through the ribbon and Daffodil/White card stock to securely hold the element on the card. I added my sentiment under the ribbon.
