Thank you - Sunflower

Hi Everyone!


I didn't realize that the My time to craft challenge ends tomorrow(I think). The challenge is called In Full Bloom.  I have a ton of thank you cards to send to all of my wonderful friends and family for my birthday. Well here is one special thank you created for this challenge! I know this is not my usual type of card but I'm not sure why I lean toward this style when creating Thank you's.... Anyway, I think this just may be my favorite card since I've started my blog! I used Walk in my garden (sunflower) and sized each flower smaller than the last  using my gypsy. I added pop dots in between each layer to give dimension.  I used brown and black glitter (mixed) for the seed head. I inked and inked :) the edges of the petals and added some ribbon(also inked) and a cute little sentiment. I hope you all have enjoyed the Labor Day weekend! 





Card – 5.5” x 4.25”
Cartridges –  Walk in my garden
Paper – DCWV
Ribbon – Celebrate it
Ink – Tim Holtz, Colorbox
Sentiment - Printed
