Sunflower Day

***This is my second post for the day.  For my Festive Friday post please scroll down or 


Hello again!  I ended up having some time today to make a card for three challenges.  The initial inspiration came from the photo at the Fusion challenge.  It's a CAS design so I'm entering it in the Virginia's View Clean and Simple challenge and since I used all stamping I'm joining in with Time Out's stamping challenge (but not using the optional twist of apples).  I stamped the CAS-ual Fridays flower onto yellow cardstock and then added some highlights to the petals with Copics and then used Cinnamon Stickles on the centre of the flower.  I stamp layered the leaves and sentiment and then popped up the flower for a little dimension.  Okay, that's really it for today.  I'll be back tomorrow!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flower & sentiment from Wonderful Words) Cas-ual Fridays, (Leaves from Turning A New Leaf) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Soft Suede) Stampin' Up, (Green Hills) Hero Arts
Glitter:  (Cinnamon Stickles) Ranger
Markers:  (Y17, Y38) Copic

Isn't card making great? You can go from making a Christmas card to making a summery flower card. This one is so elegant and CAS! Very nice. :)

Hey Jen! Hope you had a great WCMD! Love your card, and how you have the sentiment right over the green leaves. It really helps to compact the design and get more of that luscious white space! Thanks for joining the Fusion Challenge!
