Summer Sunflowers

Hello! Welcome to my challenge post for Classy Cards 'n Such. This week we have a great inspiration photo! Our cards have to be Sunflower Inspired.


These are truly bright summer colors in an unusual combination, at least for me. I decided to emphasize on the sunflower theme adding accents of red and green around my central image.


I stamped a bunch of sunflowers with Penny Black's Flower Gallery set. I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. Some of the flowers were stamped on a Spellbinders Classic Label Four, and some were fuzzy cut and adhered to the label afterwards. I applied Inka Gold in Yellow Gold to the sunflowers to give them a nice shimmer. I added Baby Rhinestones - Silver to the center of the flowers too.

I mounted the white label on a green metallic Spellbinders Imperial Gold Label Four, and then mounted these on a red Spellbinders Classic Label Four.


For the front of my card I added a piece of patterned paper from Shery K. Designs I printed on White Pearl Linen. I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to cut the patterned layer. Also, I created a nice border with Spellbinders Classic Edges Two and Classic Decorative Inserts Three. To finish the design I ran across a piece of red ribbon (slightly to the left) and tied a double bow.
