Peaceful Sunflowers

Today I had the chance to play the SCS Sketch Challenge early!!  Wonders will never cease!!  :)  I also got to play with some new toys today - Flower Frames 2 and the brand new Small Sunflower DIE that matches the sunflower stamp from Happy Fall!!  I tell you, that die cuts FANTASTICALLY!!!  I was super impressed with it!!!!

The base is some yellow bazzill and I've topped it with Chocolate Chip and some Origins DSP.  The next panel is more Origins DSP that's been cut with the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities.  The vertical panel is more Chocolate Chip punched on one side with the Arch Lattice Punch, topped with more yellow bazzill embossed with Polka Dot EF.  Around this panel I've attached some white May Arts ribbon.  I've stamped the Flower Frames 2 and the verse from Happy Fall in Memento Rich Cocoa and cut it out and popped it up on foam tape.  The sunflowers are also from Happy Fall and I've stamped them in Memento Rich Cocoa on X-press It Blending Card and coloured them with Copics (Y21, Y17, Y38, YR24, E35, YG95, YG97).  I then used the brand new Small Sunflower Die to cut the sunflowers out and they cut soooooooooooo beautifully!!!  To finish I added a few Chocolate Pearls to the frame and the corner and of course added a big bow made with my Bow Easy!!  :)

Stamps - Happy Fall, Flower Frames 2
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Yellow Bazzill, Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey Origins DSP

Many thanks to all my friends who've been supportive this week.  The good news is that my hubby is recovering well from his car accident......the bad news is that the car has been written off!  :(  I so appreciate everyone's love and support this week!!!  THANK YOU!!

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

I'm beginning to think you have a love affair with sun flowers LOL! Great DPs and layout. Glad you had time to stamp. We are into out second set of swimming lessons so the chlorine smell is back LOL! Verve release on Friday so I have HAD to stay up late and stamp in the hopes of winning some free Verve. Oh the things one does....LOL! Have a great day :D
