To Brighten Your Day

Hello everyone

I thought I'd pop in to share with you a sweet card. Hopefully this will make you smile.

I think sunflowers are a smile making flower. So here is a card I made using a sunflower that can be found in the Sunny Sunflower Digital Stamp and Paper Kit. Click here to check out everything you receive in this super kit.

Before I forget - The Artsystamper Shop has a sale going on - 25% off  a purchase of $20.00 or more until May 15. You have a few days before the sale ends. 

When I was deciding on what the card was going to look like, I decided to make the flower about 
5 3/4"X 5 3/4" So I  printed 2 of them out and colored one with colored pencils and used gamsol to shade. I then could not make the card I had in mind, it just wasn't going to work. 
So I decided on a   5" X7" card with the sunflower off to one side. I fussy cut the flower postioned it to the side of the card and snipped off the petals that hung off the edges.  The other sunflower I had printed, I colored some petals and cut those out placed them randomly and giving the flower more of a 3-D  effect. I also cut the center of the flower out colored it and popped it up after I glued the extra petals. 

Here is a side view

I added a few flat backed bronze pearls and the sentiment and this card is done.

This digital set has other sunflower images as well, 
so I hope you take a peak at what is included in the set.
