Sunflowers Note Card

Hi everyone! Several weeks ago one of my cards was a Featured Creation over at Scrapping4fun Challenges, so I'm happy to share that I'm guesting for them again, this time in Challenge #32 - Winter or Summer!

When I think of Summer, I don't necessarily think of water... I almost always think of sunflowers and hummingbirds, so that's the theme I went with for my note card. This is actually the second one like this I've made, so it came together very quick and easy!

I grabbed some gorgeous K & Co. double-sided papers with a foliage theme for the background and layered element. I stamped a sunflower border onto some water color paper, colored them with distress markers, and then matted all the elements on gold metallic cardstock.

I used a length of some gorgeous yellow wrinkled ribbon across the front in a horizontal fashion, created a big bow and attached a hummingbird charm. I left the inside blank to use as a note card.

I'd love to enter this sunflowers note card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock; Marco's Metallic Gold cardstock
  • K & Co. TC Foliage double-sided papers; Ranger water color paper
  • The Stamp Doctor Sunflowers Border stamp
  • Ranger Wild Honey and Peeled Paint distress markers
  • Yellow Prairie Bird Boutique wrinkled ribbon
  • Fire Mountain Gems hummingbird charm
  • Large yellow flat-back pearls

I hope you've found a little inspiration to play in our Winter or Summer challenge this time! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
