Sunflower Thanks


I wasn't ready to put up the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set yet, so went ahead and used it for Challenge #649 by SketchSaturday!  I'm not sure if it's the sketch or stamp set that made this card so easy to put together, but I love both and the result!

When Stampin' Up!'s 2020-2022 In Colors were first released, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Misty Moonlight and was excited about Magenta Madness (I love the nameAND the bright color! lol).  However, I wasn't so sure about the other colors.  Now, I think that they are GREAT and use them all the time!  Isn't this Just Jade beautiful with the Cinnamon Cider?  

I used Watercolor Pencils to color this sunflower, then went over it with a Blender Pen.  I went over some areas pretty heavy with the Daffodil Delight pencil before blending the color out.  I  think it gave it great dimension! 

Again, I went with a simple strip of matching Designer Series Paper for the inside.  It's such a quick way to add a little something to the inside of the card without wasting a lot of space.  Plus,  it's a great way to use up some of those pretty scraps!

I hope you are inspired to create something wonderful with today's post!  
Happy Stamping!
