I Love Sunflowers




Good Saturday Morning Peeps!! It is a rainy day here in southwest Missouri, but there are signs of spring everywhere.

My card today is more Summer than Spring, but still cheerful.

I used Beates Weekend Sketch Challenge for my card. This weekend Cambria is the host.

The card is very simple, I used the Hello Sunshine DS paper and used chocolate chip, kiwi kiss and summer sun cardstock. The "sunflowers" are made with the 5-petal flower punch, punching 4 for each flower and layering them. The leaves are made with the same punch as the flower.

The middle of the flower is a 1 inch circle of chocolate chip DS paper. I used the Ek success wavy border punch in kiwi as the base for the row of sunflowers, followed by more chocolate chip.

The sentiment is from "Trendy Trees" and stamped with timber brown stazon. I punched two butterflies, one in chocolate chip and one in summer sun. The chocolate one is glued down flat and the yellow one is just adhered in the middle. I added some sticky pearls in the center of the butterfly and some antique copper brads to the corners and pierced all around the edge.

Well, That is all for today, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Vicki
