Sunflower Burst

Ok, so I'm not 100% sure if this is a sunflower or not but I thought that sounded like a cute title. This is based on a sketch from Page Plans. They are currently have a call for their July guest designers I thought I'd give it a try.

This great flower I picked up at a stamp convention and it's by Class Act. They had some really nice images I picked up a few. I stamped and colored the flower twice using copic markers. I cut out the middle portion on one to create a 3d effect, so I used pop dots to adhere the flower to the base. The awesome patterned paper is by Scenic Route and can be found at Mothers & Daughters Creations. The background ribbon I picked up at Michael's as are the little flowers on bottom. The flowers on bottom are actually a vanilla color and I colored them in with Copic Markers and added Stickles to the middle. The large flower also has some stickles in the middle as well. I used Stampin Up Vanilla for my base and the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The entire card is mounted on Groovy Guava as is the center patterned paper.

Have you checked out "Our Creative Corner" (OCC) yet? Well they just posted their first weekly challenge today! It's a great sketch by Cindy Haffner. The DT for this blog is awesome so you will want to check it out for some awesome inspiration!

I have been cleaning out my craft room and will have some Stampin Up sets for sale real soon so please check back! Also, I'm gearing up for some AWESOME blog candy! I'm getting closer to 10K hits and coming close to a year of blogging. I promise you it's a good one!! You will want to keep your eye out for it!

That's it for now!

Till later.....
