The sponsor for our Sunflower Surprise is Clearly Besotted Stamps.
Clearly Besotted Stamps has generously provided Blooming Marvellous Stamps and Die Collection for each design team member! And the LEAD that is selected from all of the entries will also win the set and the dies for themselves!
My card was obviously inspired by the bright sunflowers in the inspiration photo but also by the hint of bright blue near the center of the photo and by the wood planking.
The sentiment on this card comes from a different Clearly Besotted set You Said It, and the butterfly is from Butterfly Additions with the coordinating die.
I also made a bonus card today. I had to make two birthday cards for two special friends. I had made the sunflower card but the other flower in the set was calling my name too! I decided that I would use the same layout and create a second card with the bold rose.
Now, it's your turn! You have until September 25th, 8 a.m. CDT to create a new paper project inspired by the photo. The LEAD and Show Stoppers will be chosen by the crew and announced on September 30th at 8:00 AM CDT. I hope to see you play along!
I really feel inspired by your 2 beautiful cards... WILL play along this time!ReplyDelete
