The Card Concept: Sunflower Serenade

Stampin' Up's Painted Harvest is a beautiful multi-step, very dimensional sunflower.  I cannot believe I haven't inked it up. So when The Card Concept came out with their Sunflower Serenade challenge - it was a perfect opportunity.

Card Concept Sunflower

I was inspired in many ways by their graphic.  Clearly - the sunflower.  But I added a sprinkling of blue for the sky and a piece of "barnwood" for the sentiment.  My card isn't exactly Card Concept's definition of "Clean and Simple" since it does have more than one main image and it's not particularly easy to recreate.  So I'm going to call it "Clean and Layered".  If I had to design my comfort zone for styles, it's definitely "Clean and Layered"!

Isn't that just a fabulous graphic?  I want to enlarge it, frame it and hang it on my wall!!
