Sunshiny Sunflower!

Hello and happy Saturday! As my husband and friends have been outside this morning dismantling our storage shed I have been in the house stampin'! I have to put lunch on soon, but thought I'd try to get my post done first! This card came together from pieces left from my recent mini Magnolias. I switched from peach to daffodil when I saw my friend, Michele's gorgeous sunflower card! I just had to make some!!
My sunflower is cut from 3 of the Papertrey Ink dies, put through the crimper to weaken the fibers and then smushed by hand. After that I sponged More mustard on the edges and put the three together with glue dots. I pushed and curled the petals where I wanted them. I used leaves from the Magnolia die to make the small leaves peaking out-what is that part of the flower called? The sentiment is SU and the leaf/stem stamp is Papertrey. I used dotted paper from Graphic 45 for my sunflower center. The plaid bg stamp is my favorite oldie from All That Scraps.


And then there is sweet Tilda (#3005 MINI TILDA IN RUBBER BOOTS) who is colored with copics! For once, I feel like I got the folds in her dress right! Norma is my idol when it comes to coloring 'fabric'! I will have to look up the colors used, but they are the same as the two cards I posted on June 1.

I'd better get the guys lunch on! They've been workin' hard! Hope you are having a great day!

Take care until next time!

Cheryl
