Sunflower Blessings

Hello Everyone!!  Today I was playing with the new Harvest Blessings set by Our Daily Bread Designs - I was planning to make a completely different card, but this is how it turned out!  Sometimes that's just how it goes!!  :)  This fits for both the F4A24 Challenge to use an image from a garden and for the CopicOz Challenge to use Copic Markers to colour Flowers!

I started with a base of Old Olive and layered with white and then two pieces of Devonshire Collection DSP, topping with some yummy striped ribbon from Stacy that I've been hoarding for ages.  Next I stamped the sunflowers and matching verse from Harvest Blessings in Memento Rich Cocoa onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (Y35, Y38, YR24, E35, E37, G24, G28, BG0000) and added a little white gel pen for highlights.  I cut this out using Petite Oval Nestabilities and matted with the matching scallop in Chocolate Chip and popped it all up on foam tape.  To finish I added a few Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the corners.

Stamps - Harvest Blessings (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, White, Kasiercraft Devonshire Collection DSP
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories - Copics, Large Petite Oval and Scallop Oval Nestabilities, Striped Ribbon, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Foam Tape.

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

Fabulous autumn colours, and wonderfully coloured as always :D I just love that wide striped ribbon.

I'm almost finished book three - may have to stay up late tonite to finish it! Midnight has now become my new bedtime LOL and I can't wait to read what happens next. There are so many twists and turns and I just love the dynamics of their relationship. Good thing I still have three more to go!! Have a fabulous day :D
