Sunflower Thanks

Hey all! Back again! I've made it to the room and gotten a few things done, but not near as many as I'd like! And that probably won't get better anytime soon! The garden is in full production mode, and we're approaching State Fair time and College Football season! Good news though is my preorder is arriving soon so hopefully that will be motivation!!

This was created during several trips up to the stamp room. The first night I did the background, then the next I finished it into a card. Can't remember if I just pulled these colors together, or if I had a challenge I used. The background came out very nice and I really hated to cover up as much as I did! Using the Touches of Texture set, I stamped the long (wide) floral dotted image in Crumb Cake over and over, bottom to top. Then over that, I added the alphabet image in Crushed Curry inset from the left side, and the Splatter image in Pear Pizzazz on the right edge. Finally I sponged all the edges with Pear Pizzazz. I layered that onto a Crushed Curry accent layer and then a card base of Pear Pizzazz. The flower was stamped by doing the solid image first in Crushed Curry, then the outline over in Crumb Cake. I had a little trouble lining this up, but think it finally came out OK. Miss the days of all wood stamps, and logos on the images to help line them up! I added the stem, splatter dots in Crumb Cake around the edges, sponging in Pear Pizzazz, a Thanks in Crumb Cake from Thankful Thoughts and a Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon. Final accent, which is probably hard to see in the photo is Wink of Stella in the flower center and on the leaves.The flower panel is attached with dimensionals to the background.

Thanks for stopping by!
