Local Sunflowers

Hello Friends!

Over at Dolce Stamps and Cards we are featuring Local Rubber King Stamps.  Who doesn't love a

bright and cheery sunflower!!

How I made this card.......

~I stamped this beautiful Sunflower Group with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copics twice and cut the largest flower out and popped it up for added dimension.

~Cut the image out using Spellbinders Labels 8.  I only wanted a thin border and the next size up was too big, so using the same die I layed it down on some brown cardstock and traced the outside of  the die and cut it out.  This way you get double the Spellbinders in one set!

~I sponged the Cosmo Cricket Panel with Spiced Marmalade Rangers Distress Ink. , and paired it with the border from Spellbinders Parisian Accents.  I die cut the corner at the same time and attached it to the top of the image.

~The back white panel is embossed with Sizzex Sugar and Starry Night embossing folder set.

~I added some Lace, White Satin Ribbon and a couple of pins to the Cosmo Cricket Panel.

~Popped the image up with EK 3D Dots and added some Kaise Pearls.

Finished card size is 5-1/4 x 5-1/4.
