Sunshine on a Stem

Hi everyone! I'm super stoked to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #54 - Anything Goes! Come play with us! We know you love some Anything Goes (wink-wink)! Our fabulous sponsors this time are Bugaboo Digi StampsSparkle N Sprinkle and Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More!

I chose the beautiful Sunflowers digi set from Sparkle N Sprinkle to create a flower pot pocket card that is just too cute! The pot is basically a sideways Z-fold. You know how I love fun folds and am always looking for out-of-the-ordinary projects. I found my inspiration when I saw the tutorial for this in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter several weeks ago and thought it looked like such fun! ;)

I cut the sunflowers with my Silhouette and colored them up with a few Spectrum Noir markers. The sunflowers are adhered to the card that slides down into the pocket which you'll see in minute.

 I used some of my all-time favorite Prairie Bird Boutique wrinkled ribbon in a golden orange color to wrap around the flower pot and to create a big gorgeous bow. Since I'm using Sparkle N Sprinkle image and sentiments, I thought this project needed some sparkle, so I added a pretty hummingbird charm to the center of the bow and affixed some Dot Sparklers to the scallops across the rim of the flower pot. I cut the front sentiment with a stitched sentiment flag die.

Here's a shot of the card out of the pocket. How cute is that?! :D

I love sunflowers and always have... they are one of my favorite flowers! And I just L.O.V.E. this sentiment!

One last photo before sliding the card back into the pocket...
