I made this simple card with some of my new goodies! I had no plan in mind when I started! I had a huge pile of stuff in front of me at my work space and just kind of went with the flow! This card opens up instead of out like my usual creations. I used Stampin Ups! new in color Kiwi Kiss for the base. I was not crazy about this color when I first saw it, but I fully anticipate it growing on me! : ) I distressed a Very Vanilla layer and stamped a sentiment from Sincere Salutations on the bottom. I made a sunflower using the round spiral punch and by cutting all of the petals inward and layering a chocolate circle on top. I gave it some color with a SU! Only Orange marker. I added corrugated leaves using Patty's idea, but then added some detail. I first saw the idea to make a flower from the punch at one of my demonstrator meetings! I just love this sunflower look though! I layered the top layer on a generic yellow piece stamped with the Weathered background stamp and then layered that on a piece of distressed Chocolate paper! I added the flutterby's from the SU! set called Dreams Du Jour . They really made the card! I added some sparkle bling, cause well that's what I do! : ) I will be sending this card to someone very special! This person always manages to brighten my day with her perky attitude! Hope she likes it!
Since I was so descriptive here I will refrain from listing the recipe, but will be happy to answer any questions!
We are off to a cook out now! Hope that you all have a wonderful Sunday!
