SSSC54 Kind Thanks

Good Sunday Morning Peeps! It is my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!!!

Here is the sketch we are working with this week:

I LOVE sunflowers, they are some of my favorite images to color, so when I saw these nesties, I HAD to have them! I just got them in the mail this past week and knew I wanted to use the sunflower for my circle element on the sketch.

The sunflower is fairly large by itself, almost 4 inches across, so my card is fairly large. It is 5-1/2 inch square. The base is made from kraft card stock, I followed that with some chocolate chip card stock. The DS paper is from the new SU Sweet Pea Pack. I used Crushed Curry card stock to cut out two of the sunflowers, I sponge with chocolate chip while the die was still on the paper. The sentiment is from the "Thank You Kindly" stamp set. I stamped it with black stazon onto white card stock and sponged the edges with chocolate chip ink. I hand cut the end and curled it a bit to make it "wave". I added a strip of chocolate chip card stock to the side with a line of gold brads.

Well, that is all from me, let's see what the rest of the Sketch Team has for you today.
