Sunflowers Challenge

It's time for a new challenge theme at
Double D and it is Sunflowers!!

We have a fun mood board for lots of
sunflower inspiration.

I love sunflowers, I think they are the happiest flower around.
Years ago I had my kitchen decorated in sunflowers
and it was always so bright and cheerful.

I really liked the jar of sunflowers in the upper right corner
and let the kraft colors inspire me for my card base.

The stamp I used I is one I picked out from Neat & Tangled
with a gift certificate I won a while back.
As soon as it arrived I knew it was going to be used for this challenge.
I didn't add much to this card as the stamp is large and I didn't think it
required anything but it's own beautiful self.
Once colored I used a Sue Wilson frame die from the set Hannah to cut it out. 
A tiny bit of sparkle was added to the flower center to finish it.

So, if you want to be WOWED by some beautiful sunflowers all in one place
then be sure to visit the Double D blog!

Entering the following challenges:
Artsy Stamper .... Fall Flowers
NBUS #17 .... never before used schtuff
The Flower Challenge …. Add Sparkle

You're so right Diane, this is a stand alone image and you've colored it up perfectly! Love your sweet card design and I'm thinking I need that SW frame. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

I love sunflowers all by themselves, but this stamp with additional flowers has changed my way of thinking. I love this card and the kraft papers that you worked your magic on.

This is so pretty. I love the kraft card base with the neutral gingham panel. It really makes that focal image pop, and you have really colored it beautifully.

Oh, wow, what a beautiful stamp! I love sunflowers, too. Who doesn't? Daisies and sunflowers have to be the most cheerful of all flowers. Love the gingham and kraft, too. I can really see the picture from the mood board in your card.
