Sunflower.......

Flourishes is celebrating their 3rd. Birthday and they have a new challenge for this month:  Look Who's 3 Challenge.   You just have to make a birthday card for Flourishes and use a flourishes stamp.  Well, just look at what I came up with:     I'm also going to enter this in the Bring Back Beautiful...Rustic Challenge at Flourishes.

Since I just love Sunflowers and just happened to have this new Flourishes stamp from their Sunflower set,  I decided to make the birthday card using this image.  I stamped the image on white card stock with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers.  I used a cotton ball with blue ink to add color behind my image.  The corner medallions are a new Heartfelt Creations Die manufactured by Spellbinders (so naturally, I just had to have it!) I distressed those with Ranger Distress Ink in Antique Linen. You can purchase these dies from Joan's Gardens.  I used Spellbinders Dies to add layers for my image.  Flourishes has so many beautiful stamps and they are just made to use your Copic Markers.  I hope you enjoy my card.  I just loved making it!

Supplies:

Flourishes Stamps
Gina K. Designs Card Stock
Heartfelt Creations Die (Spellbinders)
Spellbinders
Pearls, ribbon, Paper from my stash
Scor Pal
Scor-tape
Memento Ink
Ranger Distress Ink
Copic Markers

Beautiful! I like the flourishes sides you have with the sunflower. And pearls are always a favorite accent of mine. Beautiful card.
