Shine Bright Sunflowers

Hello!  I hope your weekend is going well.  After the thunderstorms we had at the end of the week, the weather is gorgeous now.  After posting this I am heading outside to enjoy the weather.

I have mentioned before that sunflowers are my favorite flowers.  Last week, I was scrolling through all the digital stamps available on Etsy and found this image from Twinkle Lane Designs.  I bought it immediately and started coloring with Copic markers that evening.   I had to wait until today to have time to make cards with the images.

For the first card, I kept the design pretty simple.  I used a few scraps I had from a  Penny Black paper pad, stamped a sentiment, and added some buttons and bakers twine.

For the second card, I used left over pieces from a My Mind's eye paper pad.  A dry embossed panel added some texture.   I popped up parts of both sunflowers to add dimension.

Here is a closer look at the dimension.

Thank you for stopping by!  Stay safe and healthy!
